PIC OF THE WEEK: 01/16/17 • PREVIOUS WEEKALL 2017 PICSNEXT WEEK

Where: Richmond, VA • Byrd Park
Notes: With about an hour gap between a couple of errands, I decided to stop by one of the local Richmond City Parks to check the ponds for any new arrivals. Sure enough the reports of a couple Redheads was true and a few additional Ring-necked Ducks had joined the population since my last visit. These ducks tend to move around from one lake to another within the park. The longer they stay in the park, the more acclimated they get to such a busy place. After a while they tend to be more tolerant of people. Thus, the later in the season it is, the less difficult it is to get within good decent range of the birds. Even if the main flock stays well out in the middle, an occasional solitary duck or two may swim closer to the edges. This is when sitting still among the edge of the water can pay off. I try to find a corner where I have seen them feeding close to shore with the sun to my back. Blue sky days are best because of the color reflected on the water, always results in better images. Perhaps the next cold front will send a few more of these beauties our way. After all we still have a lot of winter left on the calendar.
