Duck Question

Duck Question

Postby jbullard1 » Sat Jan 28, 2012 8:05 am

I don't know much about ducks but I have seen a couple here that I cant identify
One is a fairly large one mostly white with a reddish brown head.
The other is a smaller blackish duck with a lot of white on its head.
Any Ideas, I'm trying to get a decent pic but no luck so far

Also check Redhead on the canvasback.

If the second duck wasn't a merg. it might have been a bufflehead.

First one is definitely Canvasback but it's a toss up on the second between Merganser and bufflehead I have to get a better pic

Jbullard, not saying it couldn't happen but the odds of it being a canvasback or redhead in pyland were slim :lol:

there are a lot of wood ducks and a few mergansers in pyland bottom.
