As always, I had a good look around when we got there:
It was a bit breezy, as you can tell from my fur!
We saw Blue Winged Teals again!

Then I saw my favorite ducks!
See the resemblance?
We also saw these guys!
We do believe they're Ring-Necked Ducks! (Check this link.) Aren't they cool? Here are some more pix of them:
Here's one swimming with some Redheads and friends!
Mom is trying to ID the duck in the upper right-hand corner of that photo above.
Let's zoom in - check the upper right in these pix:
Sort of a coppery-brown head with a white dot by his bill. If you have any ideas, please let us know!
I made sure to scan the whole ocean, checking for more ducks:
That's one of the cool things about the Kansas Ocean - you can pretty much take in the whole thing from one vantage point. Not all oceans are like that!
|"Front and center, Mom! More Redheads!"|
Be sure to check the upper left-hand corner of the photo above! Dive! Dive! Dive! Ha roo roo roo! I hope he got something tasty!
After we'd been there a while, the ducks must have had their fill of being at the KSO and took off:
I wished them a good afternoon ...
|"Fly safe! See everyduck again soon!"|
... then Mom and I headed home, too.
I hope you enjoyed coming to the ocean with us. For more pix of the birds we saw, please visit our FlickR set Birds!
