I love ducks. The types of ducks around here vary by the season. American widgeons and goldeneye are two species that winter here in the not-so-sunny Puget Sound region. The mallards are around all year.
It’s fun to watch the ducks. The goldeneye are diving ducks that fish together in groups.
Yesterday was pretty gray, a bit chilly and quite drippy, but this little dabbling duck made me smile. This little fellow hung out very close to the shore all alone and stayed pretty close to the same spot. Normally ducks hang in groups or pairs.
