Redhead duck, female, Erieau, Ont. Jan 21, 2017

The sun came out for a while and the temperature neared 50 degrees with little wind.
A chance to get out for a walk and see a few birds.

Aythya americana Courting male Redheads perform a gymnastic “head throw” display, bending nearly in half with the neck bent far over the back until the head touches the tail. The bird then snaps its neck forward while giving a loud, catlike mee-ow call.
