179 ruddy duck

On a quick-stop bird outing to a pond near the university's research farm I spotted a few ruddy ducks among a modest but diverse waterfowl group of mallards, ring-necked ducks, gadwalls, shovelers, pintails, lesser scaup, green-winged teal, and coots. Thirty minutes for a new species is an excellent cost-benefit ratio this time of year.
