More Bird Watching


This morning I shot the following video.....this is a first attempt at posting a video here.  I call it 'Fishing Ducks', or Now you see them, now you don't!

This morning I was mainly concerned with learning how to post a video to facebook and the blog, with the help of my able, live-in IT person.

But this afternoon, we HEARD these birds, and I got a look at them through the binoculars.  I believe they are these birds:  http://www.birdweb.org/birdweb/bird/canvasback



Through the binoculars, we observed this profile, and the red head and neck, but the bodies did not seem THIS white.  The text does say that their winter plumage is darker....When I searched for 'diving ducks' at this website, the Canvasback was on the list.

I LOVE this website!  It is so easy to use! There are categories you can click on, or do a search by input, or just browse around. AND there is an audio you can listen to!

  1. I've been seeing Red Necked Grebes in the South Sound, which may be a candidate for your canvas back. Just a thought.
