Ring-necked duck update!

So, I moseyed over to the pond this morning thinking I wouldn't see anything new, ( like the ducks know the back yard bird count is done) ...WAIT!     What's that!


 It's the male Ring-necked Duck, see the guy with the Nike swoosh, Orca kinda of pattern?

 The guide book wasn't kidding, I can't see the ring on his neck at all...

Here are two males and one female.

They are diving ducks, I got lucky this time and caught this duck at the beginning of his dive. You can see the reddish mark on his neck, that is the "ring".

Close up!

This is right after he surfaced, see the water drops on his head and back.

Pretty cool!
