Any ID? Unique blue bill...:roll:



And a couple of FZ5 w/TC17 + RDS Mallards-In-Flight (MIF)

An almost gotcha



And a pretty female where I almost had my rate of panning right... (or left in this case)

Ha Ha Telecorder!! I opened this thread and ran for my Audubon field guide. Scrolled down and found you had answered your own question.

Where did you find this interesting fellow btw. I grew up in the Antelope Valley and live not tooooooooooo far north of the area now.

Regards, Maw

Hi, Maw!

Actually, I also posted it over at DPR and Dan Daniel replied with the name/reference for us!:lol:

There are a few of these Ruddys that live at Hesperia Lakes near Summit Valley (Hesperia or Hysteria or ... up by Victorville...) :G

I live over in Apple Valley so its only about a 20-minute drive. I usually drive along Deep Creek Road as the high tension lines and adjacent alfalfa fields support 4-5 Red Tail Hawks. I usually can find 1-2 RTH each time I drive by. After they get perturbed with me and fly off, I then drive to either Hesperia Lakes or up to Silverwood Lake to see if I can get lucky with the BE and/or GBH and Golden Eagle that are year round up there...

I went back to Hesperia Lakes via Deep Creek Road this afternoon and shot about 220 photos. I just finished PP about 11 of the better ones. I'll be posting a few of them in separate postings shortly... One image as a teaser...

Sentinel Mom...
