Among all the birds at the park yesterday, i saw the oddest little duck, i couldnt for the life of me think what she was...

she was:

-Constantly Diving (nearly non-stop!)
-Had a short, odd-shaped beak, it met high on the face, Like a tiny goose beak!!!

most the birds were mallards(VERY friendly too!) and domestic mixes people had left. there was also a wood duck hen, she was beyond cute! BUT i know i've seen this kind of duck before!! i just cant put a name to it.

I cant find pictures anywhere.....any help?

I wish i would have got one!
...it was so odd, it was under water more than above & stayed far far away.

this is the closest thing i could find..i think this is an Austrailian Wood Duck? BUT this duck was jet black, no 'hair-do'. the woody hen was also black but had the fancy head, her beak looked different.

Time to get out the cat food and dog carrier

Well It sure does sound exotic. Even though the woodies are very pretty - ive just never been a fan of them or some of the "rare" expensive ducks

My home grown mutts have always suited me
I wish i had a pond like that around here. I mean the retirement home around here has a bunch of ducks ( too many in my opinion ) but I dont live in that area anymore.

I can see you when you get old, out there at the retirement community with a dog carrier and some bread or corn, trying to lure the ducks in, lol.
Retirement community? really ? Me? nah ah. Thats what I will ( hopefully ) have grand kids for

" Maggie, would you be a dear and go get grandma that purdy blue duck in the neighbors pond? It would make my dear old heart so happy"
