On a recent visit to Lake of the Lilies,
there were a number of ducks I was not able to identify with my field guide.
I think there is a lot of "hanky-panky" going on there, one duck "fooling around" with another
of a different species.
These first 2 are one of the most familiar dabbling ducks...
These next few ducks I was not able to identify and are often referred to as Hybrid Ducks,
Next up are the American Coots...
Coots are a dumpy waterbird with long, lobed toes that facilitate swimming, you can see them here.
They have primarily dark plumage, darkest on it's head and neck, it utters a loud "kwoot" call.
If you are able to identify any of these ducks, please let me know in the comments,
perhaps they are not hybrids.
Or if you have any other information, I would love for you to share it!
