Climate Change raises the frequency of heavy rainfall events. If the sudden crash of quail in Texas in 2010 is a symptom of how deluges impact wild birds, we are in trouble.…Continue

Common Goldeneye - maybe

Bufflehead maybe?

Comment by Idaho Spud on November 29, 2012 at 6:07pm

Steph, I also had that thought.  Maybe the photo caught the lizard just before it was swallowed.

The white ducks with the black backs were lazily swimming in the slow-flowing, small river that runs through Pocatello at an area that has lots of trees on both sides.  There is a paved path near the river that a fair amount of people walk and ride on, even at this time of year.   The white ducks seemed to be mingling with the Mallards.

Joan I'm not sure if that is Photoshopped or not.

Maybe the photographer just caught the lizard at the time it was in the birds mouth.

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.

Comment by Idaho Spud on November 29, 2012 at 5:39pm

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.

Comment by Joan Denoo on November 29, 2012 at 5:08pm

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

Comment by booklover on November 29, 2012 at 4:54pm

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

Comment by Idaho Spud on November 29, 2012 at 3:47pm

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.
