And here's a regular Fulvous Whistling-Duck for comparison.
The morning started when I looked out the back window and saw our first Northern Shoveller of the month.
And our first Lesser Scaup with four Ring-necked Ducks. Photo leaves a bit to be desired.
And lastly I saw a distant floppy-tailed black bird sitting on the carrizo out of the wind. It's getting late for Groove-billed Ani.
Finished the month with 123 species seen from our yard, an all time monthly high. It broke our previous record of 121 from Oct 2017.
