    Early January, we decided to go on a long ignored Loch of the Lowes, seemed to stop going there since the start of Covid. Also my friend wanted to try a monocular due to his failing sight. He managed to test it out first, through the window at the feeding station. A Mallard came through...

    Nonbreeding Mallard or Hybrid? (Central FL)

    So I've seen this duck around a local pond before and I was just curious, is this a mallard in between breeding and nonbreeding plumage, or is it some kind of hybrid? In general, is there a good way to tell the difference? I'm not very experienced with identifying ducks and potential hybrids, so...

    Tips for Identifying Mallard vs Mottled vs Black Ducks

    Hey all, I've been having a hard time telling the differences between these three ducks. I have these photos from earlier that I'm almost certain are Mallards, but I find it difficult to tell based on the wings. I know they're definitely not Black Ducks because they do have white on their wings...

    Ducks in the Netherlands--Groningen

    Hi all! Mallards/Gadwalls and Tufted Ducks are sometimes difficult for me in their summer plumages. Can you confirm Mallard for duck 1 and Tufted Duck for duck 2a-b? Photographs taken 28.08.2022. Thanks!

    Not the most photogenic of settings, but the action was fun to watch. The ducklings, and especially the one all-yellow one, were jumping up to grab at ... not sure what. Insects? Algae? Anyway, at something apparently edible higher up on the canal wall. Oh, and for those who wonder: Nope. My...

    On day 5, when we were practicing editing, I tried cloning out some of the light reflections in the background on this shot. I think that improved the shot, but we were just doing some "quick-and-dirty" practicing. I'll have to take my time doing a cleaner job. Oh, and what's going on here is...

    Did I mention that my recent trip to the UK was to take a 5-day wildlife photography course at U of Nottingham? This was the last of the crafts courses husband and kids gave me for my 70th birthday, and that I've had to postpone for 2 years due to COVID. Anyhoooo ... I finally got to take it and...

    It's important to appreciate "common" birds, like this glorious Mallard, too.
