Interesting ducks. Their colors and “beaks” are something else. Beautiful.
Thank you, AuntieBarbie! They are not ducks, so no wonder they look different. I found them very fascinating, with their plumage and long bills.

Excellent capture Eivor! I have never seen these interesting birds.
Thank you, Mari!
A beautiful shot Eivor.
Thank you, Al!
This is a terrific photo, Eivor. And what beautiful birds! I will go to Belmar this week and try to find them. Great work!
Thank you, Eric! Did you find any? I’ve been gone for a while, and have not been back there after I got this capture.
Härlig bild Eivor, vilka fina fåglar.
Such interesting birds . . . a wonderful capture!!!
Love these guys – so elegant with that understated color – just got my first look at them in the wild recently – thrilling. Nicely composed image.
Thank you, Ken! They are very fascinating birds to look at, in my opinion. Maybe partly because they are fairly new to me, too.
