Duke Ducks: Part 9 - Other Ducks

In reviewing my photos, it seems as if my interest waned in having multiple photo shoots of each species of duck that lives in the Duke Gardens. Thus, today I present a variety of ducks. This will be the last set of duck photos, though certainly not the last of the non-duck waterfowl photos.

While walking into the office one day, I came upon this male Philippine Duck that seemed to be begging for me to take his picture.

Not far away was the female with an equally fortunate pose.

Earlier this year, Amy and I happened upon the two of them taking an afternoon rest.

I believe that this is a Chestnut Teal, though I'm not sure. It is one of the smaller ducks and tends to get pushed out of the way when people are throwing bread.

This is a Rosy-billed Pochard—one of the more strangely adorned ducks.
