Harlequin Duck (Histrionicus histrionicus) - 02Jan2014

Named after a clownish character in theater in the 1500's, this uniquely patterned duck is annually found in NC but usually is a juvenile bird that has lost it's way.  The below couple were the stars of the show at Bonner Bridge in the OBX for several weeks in 2014.

I am sure I will get better photo ops soon or at least will use a far better camera than I had in 2014.
