Thank you Spud for the Mallard pic.

What habitat did you see the duck in? It's very important to note habitat when trying to identify a species of bird.

If anyone knows what duck has white feathers with a black back, I'd like to know.  Next time I'll take my camera, and if I get a picture of one, I'll post it.

Spud, I wonder if it is photoshopped as well. If anyone know, please clue us in.

I'm wondering that too Spud.  Interesting picture Joan!

Interesting picture Joan.  I'm not sure what's happening.  I wonder if it's real and if so, if the lizard has the strength to hold the beak open.  Just the way my mind works.

Went for a 10 mile ride on my recumbent trike this morning along the greenway trail by the Portneuf river.  I saw 10 times more ducks that ever before, and wouldn't you know it, this is the first time I left my camera at home. 

Some were white with black backs, but I just tried to find pictures of them and can't.

Most of ducks today were Mallards:

Earthflight Crane Migration Spectacular HD

These fascinating cranes travel 3,000 miles to mate in Sweden. Nature, in its wonderful ways.
