Ring neck ducks
Migrating waterfowl on Goose Pond
Male bufflehead. I seldom get close enough to see the coloring, but the dramatic black and white is easy to identify at a distance. I look for them in late April and October.
Hooded Merganser These little ducks are just stunning! They migrate through in early spring and late fall and we sometimes get a good look at them

Black duck we sometimes see these ducks in the summer, too. They also crossbreed with mallards, creating quite a range of markings.
These ducks nest in trees or boxes.
