Canvasback (four photos)
Aythya valisineria

Any time I can see an Canvasback Duck is one great birding day.  I hadn't seen much so I decided to leave the
island.  I almost didn't stop at the first bridge but then decided to take a look to see what the larger
 waterfowl were.  There was a glowing male Canvasback Duck admidst what I thought were Redheads.
After looking at Sibley's, it's possible some were female Canvasbacks.  © Carol Davis, 1-24-2010
