Puddle Ducks, Geese and Coot

I captured these images in a small lake near Baptist-Saint Anthony Hospital in Amarillo, where we took the grandchildren to feed the waterfowl. Also photographed a Black-crowned Night-Heron at close range, but auto-focused on the nearer branches!


Wood Duck Drake, perhaps our most handsome North American bird.


Common, but uncommonly beautiful, a Mallard Drake


American Widgeon, with reflection from lingering fall colors of the Cottonwoods.


Fairly typical Canada Goose


Judging by their relatively small size, short neck and bills, this group appears to be Cackling Geese


A red-eyed, white-billed American Coot
