I can't tell if these are perhaps Female Redheads or some different type of duck?

This was my Mother's Rhubarb plant from up North Pa, Pittston.
Relocated to my house years ago, when she came to live with us. My Mom passed away this year, and not only did it bloom for the very first time, so did the our Hydrangea. Thanks Mom!

At a local park, 30 white and a few mixed color pigeons. Tired and worn, seemed tame. Called Lancaster Bird Club, confirmed they were racing pigeons. No tags on legs. Published the info in the local paper, but no one ever claimed them. They never left, but their numbers dwindled.

I'm sure these are just hybrid mallard ducks but it was odd that they were both so obviously brown colored. These were the only two ducks like this in the entire park. I'm guessing they were just captive bred and left here.

Had a nest of babies but the nest was too obscured by foliage to photograph. What was interesting was that it was on this little island that you can walk onto in the middle of this pond which is heavily visited by people. The bird was very un-afraid of people and allowed me to get very close to get a photo.

Saw three Juvenile Bald Eagles passing overhead flying downriver within minutes of each other. Each photo is a separate juvenile. I was so upset yesterday because when we were there fishing we saw a juvenile catch a fish right in front of us after making a couple passes. Worst time to leave my camera in the car!

There were a pair of these two birds, I'm assuming hawks? They were so far up and away from me I tried my best to zoom in and get as good as a photo as I could. I enhanced the image so that you could maybe see some markings on their undersides.
