I have been checking out the new bird and animal shots and they are all really great. MayberI need to buy a new bird book because I can't find this one. Anyone know what this is called?

Gil, that's a Long-tailed Duck...formerly know as the Oldsquaw duck (name changed to be politically correct, but many older edition books will still have it listed as Oldsquaw.) They are one of the most beautiful of the ducks in breeding plumage, as you have here!
