I've been to that part of the river about 4 times before, always in the summer, and don't remember seeing a male Mallard or a white duck before.  Today, there were also female Mallards, but I don't know if those were what I've seen in the summer.  I seem to remember the summer ducks being non-colorful.  Sorry, I'm just starting to pay attention.

Would love to see a pic of the bird Spud. Then we will know the species for sure.

Thanks.

Thanks Steph.  I found the Bufflehead photos earlier and thought for a minute that might be them, however, my memory tells me the ducks I saw had white heads.  Of course, my memory is not always accurate. That's why I plan on riding down there again in a couple of days with my camera (If the weather is not too miserable).

Black and White Ringed-billed Duck

Common Goldeneye - maybe

Comment by Steph S. on November 29, 2012 at 6:11pm

Bufflehead maybe?

Comment by Idaho Spud on November 29, 2012 at 6:07pm

Steph, I also had that thought.  Maybe the photo caught the lizard just before it was swallowed.

The white ducks with the black backs were lazily swimming in the slow-flowing, small river that runs through Pocatello at an area that has lots of trees on both sides.  There is a paved path near the river that a fair amount of people walk and ride on, even at this time of year.   The white ducks seemed to be mingling with the Mallards.
