These images were taken January 30, 2013 on a local pond here in Rowlett TX. My goal was to get a shot of the "Shovel Bill Duck" that I thought I saw in the pond last week, but it wasn't there today. Nikon 70-200 mm f2.8 ED VR II with a 2X Teleconverter (Nikon TC-20EIII)
Can anyone ID this duck from this bad image? This guy just would not move out from the fountain spray and this image was cropped a lot to get this close.
John thinks this is a bluebill hen.
