The Field Guide says the Pacific Black Duck (Anas superciliosa) are "common to abundant". I think that means there are stacks of them. The ducks normally flee when I approach, but these ones were content to stay and preen while I quietly lay down to get a few almost water-level shots of them.

  1. Yes, we have had them reluctant to leave the water on Cattail Pond, and I wondered at one point if they were nesting there.
