Canvas-back Duck....

Today I finally got out of the house for a couple of hours and found myself down at the Riverside Marina to check out what was happening there. There were ducks and swans of all kinds sounding off and swimming around. This duck caught my eye and I got a few shots of it. I had no idea what it was, until a kind lady with binoculars informed me that it was a canvas-back duck. I took her word for it, and upon arriving home, looked it up in Peterson's Field Guide to the Birds. It appears to be the female Canvas-back duck....at least I think it is. Hope you enjoy it also.....
