Dabblers - Bottoms Up - Post 1

Continuing with the dabbler theme, we move now to the just the duck tail end. These are IDs which are easier in the field, because eventually the ducks have to come up for air.

If you view this post as a "test," then there are two hints that should be given:

1) I have no photos of American Black Duck, American Widgeon, or Mottled Duck in the bottoms-up pose, and as noted in a previous post, no photos of the Cinnamon Teal. So from the Genus Anas, these ducks can be skipped.

2) Just for the fun of it, I have included two non-ducks in these posts on Bottoms-up.

Bottoms-up No. 1

Bottoms-up No. 2

Bottoms-up No. 3

Bottoms-up No. 4

Bottoms-up No. 5

Bottoms-up No. 6
 Good Birding!!

What i don't understood is in reality how you are now not really a lot more neatly-preferred than you may be right now. You are so intelligent. You recognize thus significantly when it comes to this topic, made me for my part consider it from a lot of various angles. Its like men and women don't seem to be involved until it is something to accomplish with Girl gaga! Your own stuffs nice. Always handle it up!
