I seem to be on a duck kick lately (see also: Duck Duck Duck Duck Duck Dog and Pretty Duck. I spotted these lovely ladies swimming around in the water off of Water St. yesterday. I tried to get some decent photos, but they weren’t inclined hold still, so this is the best I can get.
I think these might be female Common Merganser ducks (feel free to correct me if I’m wrong). It was unusual for me to see something other than mallards, though I know there are other kinds of ducks around.
