First Canvasback Duck of the season

Canvasback Duck
Originally uploaded by ozoni11.
Waterfowl numbers continue to increase as do the number of species. Today I saw the first Canvasback of the season, 2 males and 3 females at a local private pond. Unforunately I don't have a photo of my own but am posting one from another blog as noted. There were 8-10 Redhead Ducks, several Ring-Necks, 4 Ruddy Ducks, 4 Wood Ducks and some Mallards. About 10 Killdeer were gathered on the shore.

Save trees in the Boreal forest for birds, not for paper--Opt out of catalogues
