Yesterday's Birding Trip

My Fond du Lac Big Year started today (Happy New Year!), but since today isn't over yet I'm not going to post the birds I've seen so far.  I will, however, post what I saw yesterday, including two I haven't documented yet.


Another Tuxedo Mallard.

This Mallard reminds me of my dog, playing in the snow.

Now, I love this picture.  When I took it I didn't realize the
American Pelicans were there, just the Double-crested Cormorants.

Redhead. I came specifically looking for one of these guys.
This is an American Black Duck.  Another one I was specifically
looking for, hiding in waves of female Mallards.
