This flock of Blue Winged Teal ducks was spotted on a large pond in Levy County, Florida on November 15, 2014. I was traveling back from my adventure at Cedar Key and saw this flock on the water a bit of distance from the highway. I believe this is a migratory flock of Teals. There were about twenty-five or so ducks on the water while I was there.
Of course, seeing the ducks, I had to stop and take some snap-shots. The drakes or males, have the white crescent on their cheeks above the bill, but the females do not have this distinctive marking. Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture. Enjoy! Have a happy Thanksgiving!
