A handsome Ruddy Duck put on a unique courtship display by beating his bill against his chest feathers rapidly, creating bubbles in the water. He punctuated the end of the display with a belching noise!

A female Ruddy was nearby and appeared to be watching the action out of the corner of her eye! :0)

As the secretive Sora picked its way cautiously up the path, flashing its tail nervously, I managed to catch the shot when it turned its head for one last look.

The handsome Common Grackle had love on his mind as he swaggered back and forth while puffing up his feathers and uttering a series of guttural sexy squeaks.
His all-inclusive courtship display had sure attracted the attention of a few lady Grackles nearby.

From the archive. This image was taken just over a year ago.

In April, spring melt was underway, but the pond was still partially frozen. This unique couple was spotted foraging on open water patches closer to shore.

I had gone back in the summer months on a few occasions hoping to take a photo of the (hybrid) offspring but was unsuccessful.
