Fuzzy Duckling Season

‘Tis the season for fuzzy ducklings!

These mallard ducks were hanging out on the Rogue River in Rockford, Michigan.

Goldeneye on the Rogue

We’re a winter habitat area for common goldeneye, so they’ll be heading north soon. These ducks are so skittish, but I love sneaking up on them and watching them run across the water to take flight.

Diving Merganser

A female common merganser diving in the Rogue River in search of crayfish. She didn’t seem to mind the icy water at all.

A great blue heron fishing in the Rogue River near Rockford, Michigan. It’s amazing how different (and funny) he looks facing directly at the camera vs his profile shot.
