Just me rambling about birds, books, bunnies, or whatever!

There are finer, more carefully focused and composed photos from a chance encounter with a group of Ruddies the other day... but this is my favorite because the details give away so much about this little duck... the bluish bill, the outstretched neck and jaunty tilt of the tail.
They're usually easy to find in the neighborhood ponds and almost always bring a smile.
My go-to book for historical bird names has a very long list for the Ruddy Duck; many of which are hysterical...
