    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?

    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.
