Watery Wednesday

There were lots of seagulls on this frozen pond, a few ducks and even saw a crow in amongst all the rest.

In this photo there is a duck with a great 'hair-do' that I don't recognize, so if there is anyone out there who knows what he is, can you tell me please? In the meantime I am going on a search.




Thank you 2sweetnsaxy for hosting this great meme.

  1. Beautiful pictures, Denise... I have no idea what your 'big-haired' duck is... I assume you are talking about the black one in the water.....??????? No idea!

    We had snow today--hopefully the last of this winter... It was pretty though.
    Hugs,
    Betsy

  2. The birds seem to enjoy the cold weather. I loved the one with wings outspread.

  4. I got out my bird book - I think it might be a male hooded merganser, judging by the hair and the shape of the beak. Females have the hair as well, but a much less obvious colour.
    I like the sun shining through the feathers of the one with the wings outspread!

  5. Great photos. What we need is some sun warmer weather and a little more open water for the birds.

  9. Great shots Denise, I agree that the duck in question is a hooded merganser. They are neat looking ducks.

  12. Looks so very cold!!! Brrrrr.

    My Wednesday photo is a BROWN PELICAN at the marina [I also have another photo, by link, of the same pelican that is much better...a close up on my photo blog].

    COME SEE THE BIRD!

    Hope your Wednesday is treating you well.

  14. I feel sorry for the birds and all the creatures in this cold snowy weather. They have to work hard to find food at the best of times, so much more difficult in freezing weather. Lovely pictures though Denise but can't help identify the glamorous duck! A x

  15. They all seem very happy to have found a unfrozen place to play. And isn't it lovely how nicely they all get along.
    Wonderful shots, Denise.
    Have a great day.

  17. I'm always fascinated to see water fowl living in your wintry world ... lovely watery photos.
    Hugs and blessings,

  18. Identifying birds is not my strong point, but I can deduce that the one with the big hair is certainly not a bald eagle. Nyuk, nyuk, nyuk!

  19. I love seeing these pictures, perhaps because here we don't have snow.
    Good photos, Denise!
