O is for Ornithology............
Ornithology is the science of birds.
And I am in need of the knowledge from an ornithologist, or someone who studies birds.
This duck appeared at the lake about two weeks ago.
It is always alone.
It is always in the same area by the boat ramp.
My first question is: what kind of duck is it - wild or domestic?
Is it a male or female?
I am concerned that if it is domestic, we are going to have to find someone to come and get it so it can have a home.
If it is wild, shouldn't it be part of a flock heading south for the winter?
I have seen this bird on the side of the road picking in the gravel - it has come close to getting hit by a car several times.
Hopefully I am worried about it for nothing, and one of my readers can let me know about it.
So if anyone has any idea about this kind of duck, please let me know.
And I thank you in advance for sharing it with me.
