My new lifer for 2011 together with the gang yesterday observing and trying to get some good images of this elusive duck but unfortunately, it spent most of its time sleeping the whole day !
Digiscoped with Nikon Fieldscope EDG85 via Nikon FSA-L2 DSLR Photo Adapter on Nikon D300s and edited with Nikon Capture NX2
The female on the right showed more rufous on the underparts ? Anyone idea ?
Happy birding !
