Bird Pic Of The Week

Ruddy Duck

(Oxyura jamaicensis)

Where: Chincoteague, VA • Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge (NWR)

Notes: Off on a one day solo foray to one of my favorite places, I chanced into a small group of these early migrant arrivals on the Inner Wildlife Loop Trail at Chincoteague. I had made the walk in before the loop became open to vehicle traffic. I was grateful the recent rains had provided enough fresh water to semi-fill the ponds after the long dry summer. To my surprise these small ducks were diving in a narrow tract of water that kept them squeezed in close to the shore. As the "Ruddies" worked this trough back and forth, all I had to do was position my self in the middle, and then sit and wait for one to pop-up in front of me. They did not panic and were barely concerned about surfacing so close to me. They remained very attentive the their foraging and feeding, often in so close that I could not fit them in the frame or focus on them. I took a low angle near the edge of the water, because I like the affect and perspective that provides to the photograph. Though the cold fall temperatures have not really arrived yet, these ducks are another sign that on fall is on its way.
