    Thanks to Dan Keller for discovering this rarity 24 November. This adult female was first noted by Ron Thorn five years ago 25 January 2018 and it has returned every winter since. She can be difficult to pick out when her head is tucked and sleeping. Notice the faint purple gloss to her head...

    Yet again - tufted or scaup - Western Isles, Scotland

    Came across this bird yesterday on the Western Isles, Scotland. From the eye color (not very yellow) and overall plumage I assume this is a juvenile, so maybe some features might not yet be as developed as on and adult bird. The bill doesn't show the small, black tip of a scaup, but it seems...

    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!

    This is an immature male. Adult males are strikingly black and white, with a long head tassel, but immature males such as this have retained juvenile brown smudging on the flanks, breast and scapulars with only a rudimentary tuft. The broad black bill tip extending well beyond the nail is a...

    I had a lot of fun that day playing with settings to capture colors and surface patterns on the dark water ... and plumage details, of course.

    Use more only if you don't want your tuft to show. I think probably only US folks over a certain age will get this one. The rest of you can just sit back and enjoy the tuftie shot ;)
