Ruddy Duck - Female
Even though the female plumage is very different from the male, it is still clearly a Ruddy Duck.
We have been experiencing consistently high winds for the last two weeks. With that kind of fast "air" we could see just about anything fall into our wintry island.
Winter indeed arrived in Newfoundland last night. There was at least 18 inches of snow in my driveway this morning and it is still falling. This really kicked up the Junco activity at my feeder today. I will have to dart out in the back yard and top up the feeders soon.
