During our recent visit to Ocean City, Maryland, we had a late lunch at BJ’s On The Water along the Isle of Wight Bay. There’s a sign when you walk into the restaurant that says “daily duck feeding at 1:00 pm”.
We missed the time, and I wasn’t sure there’d be any ducks that cold day; but I still grabbed my camera just in case a few stragglers were still there.
I was not disappointed! The majority consisted of American Black Ducks.

The male American Black Ducks have yellow beaks, the females have olive-green beaks.

As I took a few photographs, a smaller duck hanging further in the back caught my eye. She finally come closer for some nice captures.
She was the only Redhead but seemed content with the group. It was her sighting that made my lunch that much more delicious!
