Well, I'm more curious to know what kind of birds these are. The photos aren't that great, but I was hoping some of you birders could tell me. Thanks.

birdforum is very good, I'm sure someone there could give an answer.

My guess is that they are both some flavor of domesticated duck. My bird book doesn't show them.

They are both domestic birds. Emperor Goose on top and Muscovy Duck on the bottom.

It seems that there is as much variety, if not more, among the different domestications of geese and ducks as there is among the wild species! I bet that knowledge of the different domesticated varieties is a whole field unto itself, but not something I've concentrated on, but apparently Bill has.

BTW, Bill, what part of the Willamette Valley is the slough part that you have as your location?

Thanks for the response. It's interesting they turn out to be domesticated. The pictures were taken in one of our metroparks (state owned).

Thanks for the heads-up. THis is how I learn
