Today's duck lesson: Redhead ducks are not ruddy ducks

Red-hooded ducks at Jamaica Pond

Mary Ellen journeyed up to Jamaica Pond today, where, amongst the fresh crop of hooded mergansers, which usually show up there about now, she spotted some redhead ducks, which are not commonly seen in 02130.

Sometimes, the pond also sees ruddy ducks, which, however, do not have red heads.

… wise to stay off the ruddy Red Line these days and stick to the Charles.

I love driving half an hour to Jamaica Pond, then texting for 20 minutes while idling, before a brisk 10 minute walk around. Nature is so precious.
