Another gift from Angelica. It just takes my breath away to realize the great diversity that comes about by natural selection. No need for the god hypothesis.   Continue

Bufflehead maybe?

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.

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.

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:
