Default Falcated Duck taken Jan 1 2012

Here are a few shots of the Falcated Duck visiting the Colusa National Wildlife Refuge. I don't know how much longer he will stay but he has been spectacular and many avid birders have enjoyed his visit.
He was about 50 feet out in front of the viewing stand. Photos taken with Nikon D7000, Nikon 200-400mm f/4 VR lens coupled with a Nikon 1.4 TC.
If you would like to see more go to:

Thanks for looking and a Happy New Year to all,
Steve

WOW, beautiful creature! I've seen many ducks in the wild and preserves, some of them rare to an area, but never have I seen one of these.

Steve, your images are superb in subject, composition and final results. I have a really good time viewing your wildlife photos, thank you.
