Ring-necked Duck (Aythya collaris)

With the return of warmer weather I am visiting some favorite spots for birding and seeing some birds I don't normally see along the West Bay Walkway. Above is one such, a Ring-necked Duck (Aythya collaris), seen swimming at Swan Lake Nature Sanctuary on Saturday. I like this photo because the coppery ring around the neck that gives this bird its name is very visible here and it is often hard to see.

It looks quite distinctive. I haven't seen this one in my part of the continent.
