Joan I'm not sure if that is Photoshopped or not.

Maybe the photographer just caught the lizard at the time it was in the birds mouth.

Thank you Spud for the Mallard pic.

What habitat did you see the duck in? It's very important to note habitat when trying to identify a species of bird.

If anyone knows what duck has white feathers with a black back, I'd like to know.  Next time I'll take my camera, and if I get a picture of one, I'll post it.

Comment by Joan Denoo on November 29, 2012 at 5:08pm

Spud, I wonder if it is photoshopped as well. If anyone know, please clue us in.  

Comment by Idaho Spud on November 29, 2012 at 3:47pm

Interesting picture Joan.  I'm not sure what's happening.  I wonder if it's real and if so, if the lizard has the strength to hold the beak open.  Just the way my mind works.

Went for a 10 mile ride on my recumbent trike this morning along the greenway trail by the Portneuf river.  I saw 10 times more ducks that ever before, and wouldn't you know it, this is the first time I left my camera at home. 

Some were white with black backs, but I just tried to find pictures of them and can't.

Most of ducks today were Mallards:
