Blue Winged Teal Ducks

DSC_6152

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!

Here are more photographs of wildlife I took near Cedar Key, FL, the Lower Suwannee National Wildlife Refuge, and Levy County Road 326 (Eagle and Armadillo), on November 16, 2014.  I really enjoyed visiting both places tremendously!  By the way, the Armadillo was the first living Banded Armadillo I have ever seen.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!
