Guest Photographer

Emily went birding while visiting her Grandmother.  She had seen where a rare duck was spotted in the area.  It took two trips, but she finally saw it.   It is a Harlequin duck.  That made her 200th bird for the year. 

Although there are an estimated 200 000 to 300 000 Harlequin Ducks in the western population, the eastern North American population today consists of fewer than 1 000 individuals. Historically, the endangered east coast population had been estimated at 5 000 to 10 000 birds.

Wow -one in a 1000 that does seem very rare.
