Let’s keep the avian theme going a few days longer. I spotted this fella in a puddle along the Royal Canal in Dublin. Further research suggests he is an immigrant from the good old US of A. This bird may have wondered from a garden or may just have been lost. He did appear rather tame and allowed me to get close for a few snaps. I especially liked this photo as the shadow adds a bit of drama!
Oh sorry… he’s a Wood Duck… do click here to read a little more over at Wiki-P!
