Lame Duck

Andy | Friday, April 22, 2016 | Best Blogger Tips
I think this is a female Oldsquaw Duck. Please correct me if I am wrong. I took this photo and then I returned forty minutes later to see her still sitting on the rock facing in the same direction. Many people pass by here and normally these ducks move off to keep their distance from humans. She appeared to be under some kind of stress. Maybe ill or exhausted.

  3. Sitting on that rock would be a bit hard. I do hope the bird recovers.
