New duck

There is a new duck on the block. Either that, or this is a penguin, tipping forward and sneakily pretending to be a duck.

It seemed a bit lonely. The other, ordinary ducks were further down the river.

Maybe he's an outcast because he's too handsome?!

Nickname: "Skunk." Which might explain the isolation.

Duck, duck, penguin sounds like a better game than the original.

A tufted duck, Aythya fuligula, or, apparently, kinkuro hajiro.

So it is! (A tufted duck, I mean.

I saw another one today, at the big river. Funny how I'd never seen one before, and suddenly they're all over the place. (Well, in two places, anyway.)

It might be Mallard Fawn or White Indian Runner.....
