I JUST FOUND THE PINK-EARED DUCK I MISSED LAST WEEK
I just got some top views of the Pink-eared Duck John Shepherd told me about! The striking browns, tans and caramels of their plumage makes me think of gelato. And the pink ear is a pink marshmallow. Their bills are incredible, reminding me of a hollowed out door stopper, or odd licorice. As I was about to leave the sewage works, the duck tucked his head in his wing and perched on his left leg. May he/she sleep well. Bird 156! A terrific way to end a hectic week at work. LJ, August 16 2013.
