  2. 09 Jan 2023 Baldwin co. AL fresh to brackish marsh
  3. Hello, Forum! I was in the South Meadow of Pelham Bay Park in the Bronx, NYC when I spotted these sea ducks. I know the little guys are Ruddy ducks for sure, but the bigger black ones? Are they Scaups or Goldeneyes or something else? As always, your knowledge and help is greatly appreciated. Thank you and hope you're having a happy new year so far. -Peter [url=https://flic.kr/p/2ktn7YB][img]https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50849137347_9dbe3232b5_o.jpg[/img][/url][url=https://flic.kr/p/2ktn7YB]PelhamDucks[/url] by [url=https://www.flickr.com/photos/31175128@N02/]degibox[/url], on Flickr [url=https://flic.kr/p/2ktmDVh][img]https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50849046326_ab8eeaa404_o.jpg[/img][/url][url=https://flic.kr/p/2ktmDVh]PelhamDucks-2[/url] by [url=https://www.flickr.com/photos/31175128@N02/]degibox[/url], on Flickr [url=https://flic.kr/p/2ktmDVH][img]https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50849046351_60422ded99_o.jpg[/img][/url][url=https://flic.kr/p/2ktmDVH]PelhamDucks-4[/url] by [url=https://www.flickr.com/photos/31175128@N02/]degibox[/url], on Flickr [url=https://flic.kr/p/2ktmDVT][img]https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50849046361_d11116da9d_o.jpg[/img][/url][url=https://flic.kr/p/2ktmDVT]PelhamDucks-3[/url] by [url=https://www.flickr.com/photos/31175128@N02/]degibox[/url], on Flickr [url=https://flic.kr/p/2ktmDV2][img]https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50849046311_6009c5a1bd_o.jpg[/img][/url][url=https://flic.kr/p/2ktmDV2]PelhamDucks-5[/url] by [url=https://www.flickr.com/photos/31175128@N02/]degibox[/url], on Flickr [url=https://flic.kr/p/2ktmDW9][img]https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50849046376_9f17d2106a_o.jpg[/img][/url][url=https://flic.kr/p/2ktmDW9]PelhamDucks-6[/url] by [url=https://www.flickr.com/photos/31175128@N02/]degibox[/url], on Flickr uuhhh what happened ?
  4. These images are stills taken from a video I recorded this morning, at Hart Park in Bakersfield CA. Apologies for low quality. Am new to bird identifying, just curious about what I saw. Similar in look to Wood ducks or Harlequin ducks, however I distinctly recall seeing a brown belly, separated by a horizontal white line from black/dark-colored back and head. There was also some red on the face. About the same size as the mallards they were swimming with.
  5. Hi, I saw those ducks yesterday in the Toronto, ON, area. Are they some domestic mallard ducks? They were bigger than mallards. thanks
  6. Seen in Westport, CT, Oct 23, late afternoon, waddling near banks of salt pond - three individuals (2 pictured). I'm new to ducks and having trouble with ID. Any ideas?
  7. Hello, fabulous forum! I think I snapped photos of some northern Shovelers and perhaps Greater or lesser Yellowlegs from afar. Can anyone confirm? I think also that the one I snapped flying is aldo a yellowlegs? Thanks, everyone! -Peter Shorebirds and Ducks 1 by degibox, on Flickr Shorebirds and ducks 2 by degibox, on Flickr Shorebirds and ducks 3 by degibox, on Flickr shorebirds and ducks 4 by degibox, on Flickr Flying shorebird 1 by degibox, on Flickr Flying shorebird 2 by degibox, on Flickr Flying shorebird 3 by degibox, on Flickr
  8. greetings. swimming on water. mostly alone. bill looks black. black stripe across eye, bordered by whitish swaths above and below. body seemed dark brown, with white edges here and there. eye also seemed dark. dark brown cap, with other parts of head and throat possibly appearing a lighter brown. my best efforts (female): mallard; american black; green-winged teal. apologies for poor lighting / quality: the sun will be where the sun be; i have yet to learn the phone camera advanced options. edit: 07 july 2020; late afternoon / prevening / evening.
  9. I saw this duck in Newport News Park in Newport News, Virginia. It looks different than the other male mallards I have to seen. Someone told me they thought it could be a hybrid duck. I am new to birding so this is way above my knowledge level. Does anyone have any ideas as to why it looks different?
  10. Hi. New to the birding game and have been trying to identify every bird I photograph. Came across these two ducks today - they are shaped like mallards, but the colors are too tawny. Seen together at Willow Lake in Flushing Meadows Park, Queens NY at 3pm on Sunday, April 19. Wading/Swimming/Eating bread someone was feeding them along side a host of other regularly colored mallards, gulls, and some pigeons. A little research makes me wonder if they are showing eclipse plumage?
  11. So I spotted these ducks back in August in Hermon, NY (It's basically in the Adirondacks) St. Lawrence County. I identified them as domestic/mallard hybrid but I was wondering what others thought. Thanks ?
  12. I am located at Pato Blanco Lakes RV Park in Benson, AZ Date of all pictures is 02/09/2020 There are 3 ponds here with several different species of water fowl but I have 3 that I can't positively identify. They may be domestic water fowl but I'm not completely sure. Thanks for any and all responses. Very much appreciated. I think this is the White-fronted Goose. It rules the pond and is often seen breaking up mating of other water fowl. They also like to chase humans. I think this is most likely a domestic male duck but not sure of his species. He is mating with the next female duck that interestingly has a black bill while this male has the yellow bill. Both bills however seem to be the same shape. This is the female that the above male was mating to while I was taking pictures.
  13. I saw this pair of ducks on the lower Brandywine, Wilmington, Delaware. Tried my usual identification apps with no luck. I’m beginning to wonder if this duck is North American at all. The blue feet should be an easy field mark, but don’t help me.
  14. I saw this duck in flight today in Maricopa County, Arizona over a lake. Is it a scaup?...may be greater. Any help is appreciated.
  15. Is this a Mallard without the neck ring or a different species/variation? Thanks for any assistance.
  16. Hello, Trying to identify another duck, my bird id app can't identify it. Sorry for the image quality, it was exported from a timeline in Final Cut Pro X. Date: 11/08/2019 Where: Atascadero, CA - running right past me. Thanks again for the help.
  17. Hello again, Need help again identifying another duck. I think it's an immature male/female Ruddy Duck. Merlin ID also identified this as a Ruddy Duck. Location: Atascadero, CA Where: Swimming in a lake When: November 8th, 2019 Thanks for your help again.
  18. Hi. In my search to identify this duck - see photo- I found this forum. ? We saw only two of these ducks in a salt water marsh in Longue Rive, Quebec last week. They seemed fairly big for ducks and my birding friend thought it was from the geese family. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
  19. Location: Batterson Park Pond, Farmington, CT Date: 24-AUG-19 Can someone please help Id this duck?
  20. Both photos taken this July in eastern Scotland in a wooded area with a pond. 1. What bird? https://i.imgur.com/K7IX8WK.jpg 2. Greater or Lesser Scaup https://i.imgur.com/O3IU1vZ.jpg
  21. 2/16/2019 near Universal Studios Orlando. I'm leaning toward male Mallard X Mottled and female pure Mottled.
  22. Can anyone tell me what species of duck this fellow is please? I've never seen one like it before. In southern Alberta 22km south east of Cardston. Photo taken Oct 6/18. He was with a whole lot of American Coots.
  23. hi, I saw this bird today in Toronto, Ontario. is it a mallard (juvenile?) or wigeon (why not white forehead?). thx
  24. This duck appeared swimming in a fresh-water canal behind my home in Boca Raton, FL. It does not look like the usual ducks that I see here (Muscovies and FL mottled ducks and an occasional mallard in eclipse mode). It was seen on Oct 30, 2018.
