We saw warblers on our walk with Tralee on Wednesday, so I went back early AM today and managed a few captures. These fellows are so small and spastic-quick in their movements they are difficult to capture. MANY throw away images.

looking for help/info

when photographing this Hen Wood Duck, noticed the green on the head

none of my sources indicate that there should be green on the feathers of the head

any thoughts
I suspect there was a Mallard in the family history somewhere along the line. Wood Ducks and Mallards can hybridize.

hmm

I didn't know that

just heard from a member of my local Audubon society with the idea that it is a first year male

but I thought the white eye patch indicated a hen ???

A chipping sparrow singing for love, or territory (which is indirectly for love). For all his effort, his voice is tiny.
