A number of shots taken over the past few days of our resident winter waterfowl. I enjoy sharing my experiences with you, and now that I'm fully retired, I now have more time to spend doing what I enjoy doing. I post them to share with the community here, but please do not feel obliged to comment, as I've taken up too much space and time here recently. However, if there is something you particualrly like or dislike, I do enjoy hearing from you.

Ruddy Duck - male (winter plumage) - A relatively small duck and usually quite timid. I was pleased that a raft of these floated by fairly close after sitting behind a fallen tree.

Ruddy Duck - male (breeding plumage) - out of a raft of approx. 70 Ruddy Ducks, all the males were in winter plumage except for this individual. According to Sibley's guide, this normally occurs in March. Hopefully a harbinger to an early spring!
