Theme 4 – A Pair Of……

Harlequin Ducks
Harlequin Ducks

A pair of amorous male Harlequin Ducks faithfully pursued this female Harlequin Duck around Barnegat Lighthouse inlet.  I took this photo in early February from the jetty at Barnegat Lighthouse State Park, around the time when these types of duck behaviours become more noticeable.  Harlequin Ducks winter in a few places along the Jersey shore.  Barnegat Lighthouse is one of the most reliable places to find them each year, attracting as many photographers as birders on sunny (and cold) winter mornings.

  1. Thanks Ron. Harlequin Ducks are among my favorites and made even more special since they’re only around for a few months a year.

  2. What a stunning picture, these ducks are beautiful! You have made a great start to your blog, looking forward to seeing more pictures from you!
