Thought you might enjoy a couple more colorful ducks I shot the other day. I haven't been able to identify these yet, anybody help?

Any comments on the phots?

Nice birds Golfer. Good shots. What kind of duck is the first one. Not like the mallards we see around here (Vancouver).Real black beek on him.. Cheers.......thekman.

Nice clear photos Golfer,

The top one is a Northern Shoveler (some times referred to as a spoon bill)

The bottom duck is a Common Goldeneye.( guess why?) They are cute little diving ducks.

Good work,

smac

Cool looking ducks golfer. I won't be seeing much of ducks here since
everything is pretty much frozen over.

Thanks Smac for the ID. Woodmiester, sounds cold where you live. Let me make you feel bad; it's snowing here in Kansas today, but I played golf 2 days ago in 65 degree weather. LOL By the way, I really like the photos you have shared.

Very nice shots Golfer. That shoveller's bill would make for a good putter don't you think :-)
