Taking the Plunge



I'm gearing up for the waterfowl season, and today, I got an early taste of the action at the Columbus Zoo. I am thinking that this is a female canvasback?

  1. Judging by the shape & size of the bill & head, I'd say you're right. Kind of hard to tell from the body, however. I checked some google images, not sure if they'll help you, though.
    I love waterfowl. Birds & water--2 cool things that go great together.

  8. Hey Tom,

    I saw plenty of canvasbacks down at the Scioto Audubon Metro Park on the Whittier Peninsula.

    Great shot, by the way.
