Description

White Rock Lake, Sunset Bay
This was a strange looking male wood duck. One eye was dilated and the other was normal. He was also going thru molt so looked fairly ragged. This is the dilated eye.
When he turned around I saw the other eye was normal. Same lighting. Very strange.

Before meeting with Heather, Jen, and Jo Ann, I stopped by this river park in Keller. Saw some water fowl that I had seen earlier today, but I wanted to still document them for this park.
