New (Old!) Bird Photographed – Redhead

Photos taken 4/4/15

After my luck with the white-winged scoter the previous week, I went back to the same spot the following weekend to see what else might turn up.  The scoter was nowhere to be seen, but there was another notable first sighting for me this time.

Mixed with several different species of waterfowl was a sleeping redhead duck!  The duck was quite far away and by the time he finally lifted his head, he was well beyond my range.

Still, it was nice to see yet another new species, especially since they are getting few and far between as I continue spending time outdoors.
