Ducks have returned

Shy ducks enjoy open water.

Shy ducks enjoy open water.

The river has cleared itself of ice and spring is around the corner. Ducks are now in evidence dodging chunks of ice as they look for food.

In addition to the many mallard ducks that can be seen in Raymore Park, there are some that are elusive and defy identification (at least by me). The mallards have unfortunately been trained to come for food while other breeds wisely stay well clear of humans.

Can anyone identify these ducks? This was as close as I could get with my puny 3.6x zoom.

    Yes, they can have an incredible detachment – perhaps a top of the food chain swagger. Coyote sightings in Raymore Park are quite rare and they’re harmless to humans but I imagine they make short work of outdoor cats.
