Diana and I are staying on St. George Island again this year. It’s located in the middle of the Florida Panhandle right on the Gulf of Mexico coast. Large flocks of Redheads spend the winter in bays along the coastline. This pair was in a small pond on St. George Island. The one on the right is an adult male in full breeding plumage. The other one is a first year male developing his breeding plumage. The breast feathers are not fully turned to black and the head feathers are red, but not yet the deep red that is shown by the other duck. The rump and tail have not turned black yet, and the back feathers still show some of the light brown from the juvenile plumage.
