Winter Ducks

Northern Shoveler (Anas clypeata)
 Winter ducks - gotta love em'.  These beauties are popping up everywhere, each week it seems someone new appears.  I've only captured photos of a few.  The excitement this week includes the Common (Eurasian) Teal spotted by Magill Weber at Tempe Marketplace,and a pair of Common Goldeneye and 49 Hooded Mergansers spotted by Troy Corman at Fountain Hills Lake.

Redhead (Aythya americana)

American Wigeon (Anas americana)
Bufflehead (Bucephala albeola)

Ruddy Duck (Oxyura jamaicensis)
Gadwalls (Anas strepera)
