I had never seen them on the lake. So had to look twice…. What are they?
If it looks like a duck, it quacks like a duck, and talks like a duck, it must be a duck right?
And at times like that I love the new feature on the Merlin App on my iPhone. You can now ID birds by pictures. Which is super cool! It works really well and best of all the app is free. Below a printscreen of what it came up with when I uploaded the above picture.
With all the info right there! How neat is that! It was for sure a diver. So cute, how the tail feathers look like a crown when they dive under. So funny!
So Merlin identified it as a Bufflehead. And now the duck that acts, walks and talks like a duck has a name 🙂 The Merlin wizzard app helped me out, again….
You learn something every day if you pay attention.
