Took these last week. I'm not real sure if this is the Greater or Lesser Yellowlegs. I think it's the Greater. The Ring Neck Duck is a bit of a rarity for me. I thought it was a Scaup at first, but this is as close an ID as I could find. Head colour seems off for a Ring Neck, but everything else seems to match....cheers...Don

All very nice. We have a ton of Ring-necked Ducks down here. That's a beautiful capture.
Congrats on the clear skies. All the clouds have moved down here for awhile. Enjoy.
Steve

Thanks Dan, Flutelady, Roger and Steve. I haven't seen many if any Ring Ducks here before. I guess they're around, but maybe a little shy.....cheers...Don

All good shots, but #4 really stands out to me as the best of the set.
