Canvasback (Aythya valisineria) by Twan Leenders

Posted on Feb 5, 2014

The bright and deep red eyes of the Canvasback (Aythya valisineria) are really something to see (no pun intended) up close like this. After such a cold winter for much of the U.S. it’s a great time to check your local ponds and lakes for any open water to enjoy respectfully close views of ducks, geese, gulls, loons, grebes and more. This bird was on Lake Erie yesterday. More snow and cold air will keep waterfowl moving in the next week.
