Can someone name this bird?

  1. 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?

    Thanks,

  2. WOW Gil, good shot!! Not sure what the bird is?!?!? :? :? :? :?
     
  3. 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!
     
  4. Of course we thank Janet for the ID. Nice capture of a pretty duck.

    Thanks for the id. Sometimes you just get lucky.
