Got another diving duck for you today in this week’s diving ducks in Centennial Lake theme. Allow me to introduce you to “The Canvasback”. As the largest diving duck found in North America, the Canvasback has bright red eyes.
Wintering in the Chesapeake Bay and the southern part of the United States from east to west, these ducks like to summer in the Pacific Northwest through Canada up to Alaska.
They are active ducks that like to travel in larger groups. So if you see one, you usually see quite a few. They bob around on the water, then tuck their head up and then dive.
The ladies of the Canvasbacks are subdued, and I’ve always thought that they have a gentle look to their eye.
It’s been fun shooting ducks, and it’s time that I get back out there to do some more duck hunting. Hopefully the next stop will be Schoolhouse Pond. For now, I hope you’re liking this homage to “Duck Dynasty” this week. Bella
