I noticed this bird from a distance the other day at . Its red head caught my eye.
I was with my boys near the shoreline and we went over to investigate. It wasn't shy and readily approached us, though admittedly it looked weird enough to kind of freak out my youngest son.
Full disclosure—it kind of freaked me out, too.
Has anyone seen this duck, or at least one like it? We weren't sure what kind of duck it is or how rare it is.
Thanks for the help.
