Canvasback

Rondeau Provincial Park, Ontario, Canada, July 28, 2019.

Not one we usually see in the summer, we are in a migration area.

Aythya valisineria
The species name of the Canvasback, valisineria, comes from Vallisneria americana, or wild celery, whose winter buds and stems are the duck’s preferred food during the nonbreeding period.
