…not to be confused with Frank Lake.
Observed today….a pair of Ring-necked Ducks, not to be confused with the Lesser Scaups that I’ve seen during nesting season. Another first time identification for me.
Also, passing through, two very shy Hooded Mergansers (I may be incorrect on this identification) The males are very spectacularly coloured…these two are the cinnamon colour of the females or possibly juveniles…hard to get anywhere near this couple, especially with Max on umbilical. I would appreciate the help of others on this identification.
The following photograph gave me the most reference material I could capture…
There remains, a single Pied Billed Grebe…don’t know why this one hasn’t headed out. Very elusive and likes to go under at the first sight of me…I’m determined to get close enough to see the light in his eyeballs at some point.
