Mister Ring Bill

male ring neck duckFriends, the ring neck ducks have arrived and the lake ice is breaking up, hurraaay!!!, I think this duck is mis named, i always call them ring bills because ring neck is what pheasants are called in this part of the country. So to avoid confusion, i call them ring bills and this is a male bird.  Photographing them in exactly the right light is the key, also i love his feathers on top of his head, makes him look very alert.  He dives for his food and is usually wet.  til Tomorrow MJ
