Baby Ring-bills

Friends, on a hot july day, these baby ring-necked ducks are going for a swim with mom, some call these ring-necked and some call these ring-bills, but this time of the year both the rings are fading away into a summer plummage.  The rings are still there but very faint like they have been bleached by the harsh sunshine this time of year.  I prefer the name ring-billed cause ring-neck in this part of the country usually refers to a pheasant.  Another 95 degree day in the northland. til Tomorrow MJ
