Male Bufflehead In Sunset Light
It's funny how much more detail you get in post than when you are looking with your own eyes. The eye is almost invisible in daylight.
Species: Bucephala albeola (Bufflehead)

Female Common Goldeneye
Females certainly are more ambiguous than males.

Male Common Merganser
This bird was fishing (diving) off the light house. I didn't see it come up with a fish in it's mouth - maybe it was after something smaller.
Species: Mergus merganser (Common Merganser)

Male Wood Duck Reflected
The light was quite contrasty. I got low to get a better angle. These ducks are really used to being fed - they came in close when the food came out, but never as close as the Mallards.
Species: Aix sponsa (Wood Duck)

Crow And Hawk Side By Side Dive
This makes for an interesting size comparison between the two species - the are pretty close.
Species: Accipiter cooperii (Cooper's Hawk), Corvus caurinus (Northwestern Crow)

Two Mallards In Tight Skirmish
The duck on the right has the duck on the left by the tail. It's close to mating season for Mallards so the males are doing a lot of "positioning".
Species: Anas platyrhynchos (Mallard)

Ring Necked Duck
The classic, I thought it was one species, get home and check the guide books and find out I was totally wrong. Live and learn.

Also, not great composition - try getting lower to the water and try to get the eye focused.

Species: Aythya collaris (Ring-necked Duck)

Great Blue Heron Face
I love the little feathers on the head.

You can see the strong black and white stripe on the head and orange in the top of the bill.

Species: Ardea herodias (Great Blue Heron)

Great Blue Heron On Rail
I love how bunched up this bird looks - I suspect he is just trying to keep warm.

Fox Sparrow
I figured this was a female Towhee, (because it was hanging out with the Towhee's) but, like usual, I was wrong.
Species: Passerella iliaca (Fox Sparrow)

Fluffy Great Blue Heron
You can tell this is a Juvenile because of the two tone bull - orange on the bottom, dark on the top.

GBH With Towers Behind
I get a kick out of wildlife this close to the city towers. A real coup for me would be to get an eagle in front of them.
