On Thursday morning I visited a local marsh down along the shores of Lake Ontario. It was a rather damp and chilly morning with a sharp breeze coming off the lake, but there was lots of feathery activity in the woods.
How well do you know North American birds?
For today's five, I'm only going to show some feathers of birds I saw at the marsh,
and you can see if you recognize the birds.
(who's really counting?!)
Could you guess them all? Well, just because I'm the sort of person who hates unsolved mysteries, here are the answers:
ONE: Male Mallard Duck
TWO: Canada Goose
FOUR: Black-Capped Chickadee
SIX: Female Mallard Duck
SEVEN: Well, this one I don't know!
Does anyone know the identity of this quite beautiful duck?
A bit larger than the mallard (top).
Thanks for stopping by today!
