I don't know why only the first image shows up. Try clicking on the sign that says posted image and see if you can see the image like that, otherwise I will post it again tomorrow night.

Oh, that's interesting about the pics. Must be because I'm at my cottage and have a slow internet connection.

I agree on the Shovelers, and I don't think the Merganser is hooded? Looks more like Red-breasted to me (I don't know about the range into Canada though).

Life List: 275 species
Latest Birds: Mountain quail, rock wren, Costa's hummingbird

-----------------
So how has the entire global warming frenzy with all its predictions of dire consequences, become so widely believed, accepted and regarded as a real threat to planet Earth? That is the most amazing part of the story.

To start with global warming has the backing of the United Nations, a major world force. Second, it has the backing of a former Vice President and very popular political figure. Third it has the endorsement of Hollywood, and that’s enough for millions. And, fourth, the environmentalists love global warming. It is their tool to combat fossil fuels. So with the environmentalists, the UN, Gore and Hollywood touting Global Warming and predictions of doom and gloom, the media has scrambled with excitement to climb aboard. After all the media loves a crisis. From YK2 to killer bees the media just loves to tell us our lives are threatened. And the media is biased toward liberal, so it’s pre-programmed to support Al Gore and UN. CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN, MSNBC, The New York Times, The LA Times, The Washington Post, the Associated Press and here in San Diego The Union Tribune are all constantly promoting the global warming crisis.
