Great shots. I like the first one the best. Nice sharpness and detail on the duck. Also the water has a beautiful glow to it. Interesting lighting effect.

Don't really know what I'm talking about when it comes to birds, and the only birding book I have says "Western Birds" but it sure looks like the picture of a raveri's Murrelet - one of its characteristics is a black half collar on the breast. Apparently they are a type of Auk (range N. Atlantic and N. Pacific, Artic oceans). It's a nice picture, no matter what it is.

Thanks for assisting but having delved deeper, I now believe it to be a Manx Shearwater.
