Three NYC IDs needed

Recommended Posts

All pictures taken this morning in Central Park.

A friend of mine thinks that is a Canada Goose, but I've never seen one with this dark coloring.  What is this?

This appears to be a common Central Park bird, but It's my first ID of the type:

Can this possibly be the Mandarin Duck that mysteriously appeared in NYC?

Bad pics - I know:

First looks fine for Canada Goose, 2nd is American Coot

Thanks - I just edited the post - can you ID the third form the crappy zoomed pictures?  I was looking for the mysterious Mandarin Duck that showed up in our ponds.

The last bird is unidentifiable, but I'd guess it's a female Mallard since it looks like there is a male Mallard to the left of it.

Agreed. I'm not seeing anything that suggests it's the Mandarin.
