I have been trying to take pictures of Birds then Identifying them with two bird books, the National Geographic Field Guide to the Birds of Western North America and the Sibley Field Guide to Birds of Western North America. My Mom called one day in June to tell me there was a Duck with ducklings near her home, so I went and hid to get these pictures! At first while taking pictures..first thought was a Mallard, but they are not. I then thought maybe a Green-wing Teal and was wondering what you all thought about this Duck with ducklings! I sent it to a friend and they were not sure what it was....the other bird person said it might be a Hybrid and wondered what happened to them!!!! Interesting!!!! So I am have been keeping an eye out to see if they were still around the area!
