longtailed duck

13 July 2018

In the lake of the tern paradise, there are also several longtailed duck, hardly shy. Unfortunately it seems that breeding went wrong this year. Adults are just gathering here. It is always so much fun to see the ducklings shortly after hatch on foraging trips. They make a jump to dive under and all chicks disappear for half a minute. Than they pop-up at the lake surface. In Canada the Inuit call this duck old squaw / old woman.
