New Bird Photographed – Canvasback

Canvasback

Canvasback

So, the fieldscope/iPhone combination really came in handy at Piermont Pier on Saturday!

In the distance, I could see Canvasbacks sleeping on the Hudson River.  It was the first time I’ve ever seen one!  I had to have waited nearly an hour before one of them woke up and stretched his wings before getting comfortable again.

Wait an hour for a moment that only lasted a few seconds… the life of a birder, huh? 😛 This would be bird species #197 that I’ve seen in my lifetime.
