Long-tailed Duck at Port Washington in Ozaukee County Wisconsin on December 26, 2020

A stop today at Port Washington gave nice looks a Long-tailed Duck. This stunning male has been seen for a few days on and off recently. It fed many times on fish while I was present. It was a cloudy day, very cold around 18 degrees when I arrived. A slight wind which just made it feel colder. Images were taken on December 26 and 28th, 2020.

When it dives for food, it appears it gets fish 50% of the time…

That long tail, wow!

    Terrific photos, Jim. It almost looks like the duck is looking right into your camera lens in some of these images, but I doubt you were standing in the water to photograph this bird! However you do it, excellent work.
