Very nice shot, fotoi, but I honestly believe this one is a molting drake. The yellow bill and the slight bit of green in the head indicate a drake mallard. Please remember, that I'm frequently wrong.:lol:

What an unusually looking but stunning eye. This close up shot of the black-necked grebe is absolutely gorgeous, Jan.

Cardinal was teasing me during yard work this am. Now that I’m all setup, I can’t get him back...


Beautifully composed shot of this blue jay, Homer.

Splendid image of the thrasher, Robert. I love the effect of the background.

Moorhens
Fantastic images Folks.
Spotted some aggressive bird behavior.
Those Moorhens sure play rough.
Excuse the high Iso mush.
Happy trails.

Very nice captures, Paul. These guys put on quite a show when they get to squabbling.

A couple of excellent shots here of the whistling duck families. The close-up of the baby is a really cute image.
