Duck Duck Goose

Ok, so here are 2 photos (actually I added a third of a close-up of a Canadian Goose I took): the first is the mystery duck. The second and third are the Canadian Goose. I don’t take many photos of them because they are EVERYWHERE here. Also they are usually flying really high in the air. I remember when they were not (not flying high, not here in Ohio). Weird how things like that happen. Anyway, the goose photo stinks, but is for ID purposes. Notice the neck length and size vs the big body. The ducks (1st photo) are small and were making a kind of whistling sound and flying around fast and swirl-y. Kind of like sea birds in a way. They are smaller than a mallard. Maybe crow sized? They might even go underwater to fish like loons do, as I have seen little duck/birds doing that on Alum Creek, but they were far away, it was last summer and it felt like looking at the Loch-Ness Monster, but I digress.  You can click on the photos for a closer view. 😉 Let me know if you know what the ducks are.

  1. i can’t help you with I D either –but there is a pond (prox 1.5 acres) next to our house and the dux will come in and/or leave and be a few hundred feet up sometimes. and, uh, boring: seems 95% of “our” ducks are the ‘standard’ mallard. a few little black ‘pinnts’ or coots, though
