Look Closely!

One thing I've learned while birding is to always take a closer look at the birds you see. At first glance (with the naked eye), hubby and I thought these were just a couple of coots.
After taking a closer look, you can plainly see that the duck on the left is definitely not a coot. It's a Ring-necked Duck!

What's really exciting is that we haven't seen one yet this year and can add it to the Big Year list!
