    The happy couple

    They're usually quite skittish, these wee ducks, but that day they were apparently preoccupied with recent courtship and came quite close (as long as I sat still on the riverbank and didn't make any sudden moves). I didn't get to see them displaying this year, though. While the Goldeneyes are...

    And here's one of the males. They're now all paired off and hiding in less accessible parts of the river, or up in the hills at small ponds. We won't see them at that riverside park again until probably pretty late in the Fall.

    European Green-winged Teal is a separate species from American Green-winged Teal, but for some reason eBird only offers the one option. I need to check my life list to see whether I'm registered as having seen Anas crecca (European) or Anas Carolinensis (American) or perhaps both. They do look...

    Teal on a cold day

    I think this guy was working on his breeding season "mane". The Goldeneye males were already challenging for rank in the flock (although the females didn't seem interested, and the challenges were only brief between feeding dives). The Wigeon males were "wolf whistling". But mostly they were all...

    Don't be fooled by the colour

    Green-winged teals are only green in the right light angles.

    On a local pond, feeding with the ducks. Unusual to get anywhere near these birds, extremely timid.
