So that dome of a head, is it all just feathers or does it's skull extend up that far?
Seems like the birds are making a return to your icey winterland. Keep the pics coming Tom! Nice shooting.

Hung, it is all feathers, their head is the same as all other ducks, but with a thinner bill for catching fish.

Well, winter came back today with 3" of snow and freezing rain, with another storm due on Friday. I am a true believer and I know Spring is just around the corner even with the record low temps we are having right now.
