A family of Yellow-billed Duck
Overall darkish plumage; bright yellow bill and green speculum distinctive
Skabenga gave the ducks a fright; they flew up and away and I managed to capture them against the rosy dawn sky
I'm sorry these images aren't too clear. This is a Little Grebe
In decent light, the Little Grebe sides and front of neck is dark rufous-chestnut.
The pale-grey gape-spot is distinctive
The Red-knobbed Coot has an all-black plumage; white bill and frontal shield conspicuous
In a dead tree above the dam, a Grey Heron sat quietly
The Grey Heron perched on a branch, looks most different to the same heron standing on the water's edge
I'm linking my post to Wild Bird Wednesday here
May you all enjoy the rest of the week!
