Does anyone? have inclination/ambition to come photo-document this cool
looking duck that's been here since Dec 20th (same arrival date as last

It's in a wee bit of open water across street from our home at 6290 Garrett
St, in west Boise / Garden City, map-spotted here:

If you come for photos, pls try not to spook this mixed flock of mallards,
wigeons, wood ducks, can geese, and a coot. Our neighbor Bob is trying for
photos, but has only his cell phone...



Yesterday we had c. 100 bohemian with 20 cedar waxwings at our fruiting
trees, all three sp of thistle monsters and we're presently looking for a
fourth (as in redpolls) at birch catkins in our hood.
