Canvasbacks

I just went into the park, and there are canvasback ducks on the inlet. Two males definitely, and one bird that was either a female canvasback or a mallard--it's raining and near sunset, and I wasn't sure. We generally get more males than females wintering over, and the males arrive first.

This may just be a stop on their migration, but they're the first of the season, a sign of winter we usually see before it snows, not after two noticeable snowfalls.
