Strange Duck On Our Lake

    So this morning I get up and see that the whole lake is covered with ice except one small 20' diameter section by our neighbors house. I also noticed that all the geese, ducks and a very odd looking bird are hanging out there.

    So I get my camera and took a few pics before it flew away. Anyone no what type of water fowl it is? The pics aren't that great - the 20D doesn't do well at 8° F....

    Damn - for some weird reason I can't upload pics, anyone else have that problem?

    It's a male Bufflehead.

    It was the only one of its kind there as well.

    Seems like an oddity that it would be in Warsaw this time of year.

    What happens to the 20D at 8 degrees? Just curious.

    Looks kinda like a wood duck. I wouldn't bet on it though.

    That would explain why in the second picture it only seems to be half flying/half dragging its feet.
