Harlequin Duck in Breeding Colors

Beautiful indeed Nancy, in its full breeding regalia. One was spotted in Fredericton last week, likely taking a shortcut cross country, to its breeding grounds, this one too, same bird perhaps?! Very nice find, very nice photos. Peter

Subject: Harlequin Duck in Breeding Colors

Was returning from a walk along the river trail in Quarryville and spied a duck of some kind, on a rock under the Bridge…I slowly crept down to the water and was amazed at the beautiful colors! I was able to get a few clear shots. Imagine my surprise, when I looked in Sibley’s and it turned out to be a Harlequin… A lifer!!!
