Bird #104 — Canvasback

aythya (seabird) valisineria (wild celery)

Barrington, Illinois — Crabtree Nature Center

A lone female Canvasback was swimming sedately around in the small patch of open water in front of the blind.  Once in a while, it would dive under the water for a short time.

About a month later, I saw my first male swimming in Gillson Park harbor in Wilmette.
