PIC OF THE WEEK: 04/07/14 • PREVIOUS WEEKNEXT WEEKALL 2014 PICS

Bird Pic Of The Week

Canvasback

(Aythya valisineria)

Where: Richmond, VA • Byrd Park

Notes: It was almost ironic when this majestically shaped duck dove down and resurfaced with a mollusk. I had just posted the picture of the week for last week of (04-01-2014) with a nearly identical behavior and pose of a different species, which feeds by searching the muddy bottom of lakes for just such a morsel also. The rusty head and red eye of this spring male seemed to glow in the fading afternoon light of this inner city pond. The bird had been resting with its head tucked under its wing when I first got to the lake. Eventually it awoke and began to head to the narrow corner where I happened to be sitting and waiting. It made 3 passes back and forth while I was there, stopping to rest a little in the center of the lake each time. This is the closest I had ever been to this species, having spent a few hours in sub-freezing temperatures this past winter attempting the photograph a few on a different local pond.
