Yesterday’s mallard post made me long to see a ducks in a more natural environment. Here’s one I saw recently in the Sequim Water Reuse Park. He swam and dove, nice duckish activities.
And here’s another guy in a pond at Carrie Blake Park. He had a lot to say. I think it mostly had to do with my disturbing his nap. He definitely looks different from the mallard above. As far as I can tell, I think this guy may be a greater scaup. But I’m just pawing through a bird book and I’m happy to stand corrected by anyone with better birding skills.
Update: I stand corrected. Both ducks are male mallards. Thank you, Paul from Powell River Photo Blog!
