  1. I was hoping I could get some ID help on some recent ducks seen in Cook County, IL. Sorry for the low-quality pictures. The first is from Oct. 29. I initially thought was a Northern Shoveler based on the bill and behavior (swimming with its bill angled down, straining the water), but looking back I'm wondering if it might have been a Blue-winged Teal. There is a faint facial marking and it did seem fairly small. I included a picture of it with some mallards for comparison The second is from Nov. 4. I didn't get a great short unfortunately, but these two seemed just slightly smaller than nearby mallards, and just a little different. I was thinking either Gadwall or American Black Duck, but realize it may be impossible to tell from the shots I have. Finally, some Scaups seen on Nov. 13. Pretty sure these are lessers, but want to see if anyone can confirm. Thanks! 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
  2. We saw this bird at 9am today (December 28th) in Drake's Estero, an estuary in Marin County, California at Point Reyes National Seashore. The day was very clear and also cold, around 40 degrees. Many waterbirds were in the estuary including Mallards, Canadian Geese, various gulls, and other ducks. These were among them. The birds had grayish bodies with black wingtips and a black tail, yellow/orange legs and what seems to be a black horizontal line going through the eye. Any help in identifying this bird would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
