Redhead Pochards at Tierra Verde

I had fun at the Tierra Verde pond. I would take photos and go back to the condo and download to see what I captured.
The Redhead Pochards and the Common Pochards are similiar,
but the Redhead is the one in Florida of the two.
If I am wrong please feel free to correct me. Ducks are new and I have several different ones to post, so please help me if I am wrong on any of them.
Not sure what is going on with the back one of the 3 grouped together.

I do love those red head ducks! I wonder if those ducks that were grouped together were having a "social moment." I know Loons do that - but only at the end of the summer. Great photos Leedra - can't believe all the ducks that were there!!

Good Morning Leedra, I am enjoying all these beautiful pictures. Such lovely ducks.

Look at all those ducks Leedra. I have yet to see a red head...although I was one once! :-(

I too love the red head ducks! I really like the photos you got of one with its wings out!

Denise said...

I don't know enough to say which is which Leedra. All I know is I enjoyed these wonderful photographs. Thank you!

Everyone loves a 'redhead' - no matter if it's a woodpecker, a duck or a woman ;-)
Glad you got to see these beautiful ducks - nice pictures!

You are quite the "duck hunter" Leedra :)

I'm not familiar with these ducks but you certainly found a lot of them.

These are such lovely ducks. I love the red heads. In the last picture where the 3 are grouped together I believe he is cleaning himself. His features are ruffled. Great shot.

You got some very good pictures of the red-headed duck.
