Canvasback

It turns out there is a duck even more rare than a Redhead in the lagoon here in Woodstock, a Canvasback! I just returned from there and got to actually spend time studying it with my binoculars and got much better pictures. The picture below isn't the greatest as it is very cloudy today and I didn't want to scare it away, but there is enough to confirm its ID. I appreciate the feedback of a few great birders (Gilles Belliveau, Joanne Savage and Dwayne Biggar) that initially made this suggestion after the picture I posted yesterday. Their guidance helped me know what to look for when I returned today.
