Distant ducks


Recommended Posts

Hi,

Are these birds swimming off the shore of Sandy Hook, NJ yesterday Long-tailed ducks?  Other birders had reported that species in the vicinity that day.  Apologize for the grainy image, but they were at about the very end of my zoom range.  Oh, and in case it should be a clue, this is on the ocean side of the peninsula.  Thanks.

Yes, Long-taileds.

 

Thank you for the quick response.  It just occurred to me I should provide a blown up view as well, but in this case I guess that wasn't necessary.

 

Oh, and this is a Lifer for me, so... thanks, again!  👍

I'm afraid you only made the image smaller.  But, as you said, there is no need for a larger image.  Long-taileds have distinctive markings.

 

Thanks, I realized that as soon as I posted it; then got sidetracked, and forgot about making the correction.  This is more along the lines of what I was trying to achieve...
