Do you have any ideas what this duck is? I have never seen their kind before. I don't have time to do any research right now and if you can ID these cute water birds, thank you in advance.
Added Note 7-26-15: I knew I could count on our blogging community and their generosity of sharing their knowledge. Thanks to several commentors I now know that this very interesting duck is the Red-crested Pochard.
I am sharing with the following memes. Thank you to all our hosts for making them a very enjoyable part of blogging. You can see other participants by visiting their links.
