Christmas Redheads and more…

After a very exciting Christmas morning I swung by Ash Creek in Fairfield to see the reported Redheads (thank you Alex Burdo!) We found them immediately, among a flock of Canvasbacks. They are really beautiful ducks, smaller than Canvasbacks with a darker back and shorter bill, which looks really pretty with it’s deep red colored, rounded head. There were 2, a male and a drabber female.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!
