12/01/13 Ducks Have Arrived

Posted: December 3, 2013 in Uncategorized

Several different species of ducks spend the winter on the estuary out back. The hooded mergansers with their white heads are the most prominent. They are very cautious and tough to photograph. The mallards, which stay all year round, are the most fun to watch especially once the water freezes.

    Beautiful!

  2. Ray, you’ve managed to capture my favorite winter ducks (although it’s a toss-up between mergansers and buffleheads). Your patience astounds, your ‘eye’ remains remarkable!
