Hello All: I went on a little outing this afternoon and took my camera with me, just in case I might see a bird or two. And I did, more than I thought! In fact, I will post another picture from this outing soon on this site.
[UPDATE: I should point out that these photos were taken on Vancouver, B.C.'s North Shore]
For now, I would like to show you this pair of ducks and ask you: Do you know what species it is? Or is it more than one species, perhaps (even thought they were clearly hanging out together)? Major clues to look at: 1) The size and colour of the bill and 2) the shape of the top of the head. My National Geographic field guide helped me sort it all out, BTW.
