American Widgeon Duck

While reviewing my 2008 photos I found this one from January last year. In trying to find out what kind of a duck it is, my Google search turned up a Flickr account with a shoveller duck and many other birds too. Isn't google a wonderful thing?

We have snow and below zero temperatures. Too bad the Edmonton connection picked this year to come to Victoria for Xmas. Ah well, they will feel right at home, I guess.

I am bringing the humming bird feeder in at night. I have seen the birds feeding at dusk - about 4:30 so I don't bring it in until it really is dark out.

I watched the Lord of the Rings - two towers this morning. Its a very good movie... really well put together. I must watch the series from the beginning now! And must watch WALL-E all the way through also.

EDIT: After some helpful information from another Flickr friend I find that this is an American Widgeon duck. Thanks D.
