Harlem Ducks

Still some great wintering ducks to be found in Harlem. The pair of canvasbacks at Harlem Piers is now 2 pair...

and giving great looks!

Here's some vid of the quartet diving, preening and feeding!

In addition to these salt water beauties, a family of wood ducks has been sheltering at the fresh water Harlem Meer.

The cautious male extending his neck!

The juvenile female.

Those Wood Ducks have been at the Harlem Meer for a number of weeks now.

At first I thought the juvenile female was the mate. It was only later that I realized there were 3 ducks, not 2. The juvenile female appears very active.
