Toronto Wildlife / Re: Humber river trail Fox

The fox just came to my door! I was inside the room, and I heard strange calls, like Gu gu gu gu, and couldn't think of anything I know. So I slided the door open, saw something ran at the edge of the lawn, and it ran closer before it trotted away, calling a few more times. Hope to see him/ her more.

This is one of the shots I used in my thread "Birds in Perspective" some time ago andit shows a rather large group of Ruddy ducks at Humber Bay East. Notice that theseducks a small and compact in morphology while your Scaup ducks are larger and havemore pronounced neck extension. They also have different series numbers but capturing
that feature is a job for the Photosaurus Rex. I think he is working in ultraviolet now.I'm eager to see his eventual and inevitable interpretation of the fourth dimension.
I really do love see your pics in those threads, IDs, youngsters and so on. But somehow I can't see them after a while.

Thank you, Ally. I didn't even know what I got until I opened the image in my computer. Poor mouse....

I must say I didn't expect to get to see a barred owl ripping a mouse apart....

 The ducks that I see on your photos are Greater Scaup (male and female) and Red-headed ducks.
Ruddy ducks (males) only have a blue-coloured bill during breeding season. Few of the ones that I saw had blue bills and although I have a picture I simply don’t know where it is right now. I have found these shots taken at the location described.
