I guess the cygnets were marching along! The park has two pools, with a land bridge separating them. They were walking over from one to the other at the time in a line, although they were separated enough I couldn't get them all in one shot...

Oh, janern, didn't see your green duck earlier. I think it is more likely to be either an escaped domestic, or a mallard-domestic hybrid, as there's a couple of domestic duck breeds which have that green plumage. I can't remember their breed names right now...

You could well be right. Cayuga duck maybe?

Hi Popo, cannot remember if I have asked this before or you have answered before, but how do find the 100-400L vs the 70-300L.

I love the size and portability of the 70-300L, but sometimes want more reach.

The lens comparison is a bit off topic for this thread, so I've started another one:

I'd have to pass on that one, but I'd guess it was a domestic or variation thereof. Does it stands pretty upright or was that just what it was doing in the photo? I'm not sure if the shape fits but I'm thinking runner duck.

It usually does stand pretty upright like in the photo. Runner duck seems like a good guess. Thanks, popo :)

The snow went away pretty quickly. As my town is on the coast it's pretty mild here and there have hardly been sub-zero temperatures since that time you're refering to. The forecast says there could be more snow on the way though

Cudos to Patti for starting this thread! I have LOTS of duck pictures as I live close to a wildlife sanctuary and visit there often. I'm having problems right now sharing my best pictures, but here is one you might enjoy.

Thanks Pierovera!
Here's another picture. I'm trying out a new photosharing site: dropbox. I'm not sure if this will work, but it is another favorite duck picture of mine. I don't know what kind of duck this is. Picture was taken with a Canon Powershot SX 150 IS

Hi X... first one you posted was of a pin tail... not sure what the second one is however. Looking forward to seeing more of your shots as we are duckless up here right now

as far as a photo sharing site goes.. have you tried flickr? Its what I have used for years and Im very happy with it.

Thanks Wolfsong,
I have tens of thousands of pictures on my laptop, but I am new to the photosharing websites. Getting the pictures from my laptop to here has been more of an issue than I anticipated. Thank you for the suggestion. Yes, I have Flickr, but I try to use it for work purposes only due to privacy issues with some of the pictures I have posted there. I don't know of a way at Flickr to have some pictures only visible to people here, and others only visible to people from work. (If it's possible, I'd love to know how to do that.)
Some of my pictures are at Photobucket, but I am not able to upload the better quality pictures there so that I can share them here. However, I do like how easy it is to share pictures from Photobucket, and the pictures are automatically reduced in size there to fit the format here. I tried dropbox because I am not limited on size, but it is not as easy to share them. I might have to move my work pictures to Photobucket, and the ones for here to Flickr.
These pictures weren't taken today, but I thought I'd share them anyway:

Wood duck (one of my all time favorites):

I don't know what kind this is, but I like the colors:
Image

Here's a Canadian Goose. They are all too common here, but maybe not everywhere?
Image

I believe this one is a domestic. I don't know the breeds:
Image

And these swan babies probably have some of their own by now:
