  7. I can definitely see what you mean with Tufted on this one, but my first impression was Ring-necked.

  8. It's one of the aythya ducks. Not Redhead or Canvasback. Leaving scaup, Ring-necked and Tufted. Scaup is the most likely option, but a few things are off. The flanks are very light brown, generally a much darker brown on both scaup. There's also very very little, almost no white in front of the eye- generally inconsistent with scaup. It's not a Ring-necked based on the head shape, and the lack of an eyering. It's probably an odd scaup, but there's one bird I can't get out of my head here which is Tufted Duck. It would be WAY rare and a state first for Georgia, but I wouldn't rule that out with this bird. If I saw a bird looking like this here in New England my heart would skip a beat. Dark brown head, pale brown back with lighter brown contrasting flanks, no white in front of the eye, typical aythya bill and the really bright "golden" colored eye that sticks out like a sore thumb are all field marks for Tufted Duck that appear here. It's most likely a scaup, but my first impression make me freak out a bit, before I looked up the location.

  11. Interesting. I agree it's definitely more sparsely marked than most. Could be based on age (maybe an immature?) or just individual variation.

  12. One advantage to upping the limit would be that we could just 'Like' an earlier identification instead of having to add 'Seconded' comments. The more 'Likes' someone draws for identifications, the more likely someone's total would actually indicate his or her 'Reputation'.
