From the distance, it seemed like just another duck, but as it
came closer, my waiting camera responded quickly. After searching
Field Guide to the Birds of North America, I could not positively identify it, so I sent an email to five of my expert bird watchers. All graciously identified – a male Ring-necked, including one who initially said, “looks like a Lesser Scaup.” The difference was a small detail … the ring on the beak. We are each different, but share one common identification detail: we are "fearfully and wonderfully made" by the Great Creator. 
Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous--how well I know it. ~ 
Psalm 139:14

I don't remember seeing one of these, either. Yes, we are all fearfully and wonderfully made!
