Ring-necked Duck?


Recommended Posts

I saw four of these ducks on one of the smaller retention ponds in the neighborhood this morning.  (Chapel Hill, NC)  I couldn't ID them when I saw them, but got a few OK long range photos.  I went through a few of my bird books without and luck and then used the ID feature on Merlin.  It had some initial problems identifying the bird as well, but I finally found a decent image of the duck and Merlin ID'd it as a Ring-necked Duck.  Merlin also ID's it as a rare bird for around here, so I'd really like a second opinion before I post it on my eBird checklist.  Thanks!
