Everyone looked very WET!
2 male Gadwalls (Okayoshigamoオカヨシガモ)
A parent Little Grebe (Kaitsuburiカイツブリ) had no time to waste as she/he was busy carrying materials to their nest, holding at least 3 eggs.

Mandarin Ducks (Oshidoriオシドリ) were on the pond at Ecology Park on that day.
I noticed they seemed to prefer flying even for a short distance unlike other ducks which are more likely to paddle. The females occasionally did something like a courtship dance, bending their necks backwords. At one time, a female preened her partner's feathers on his neck. (but she pulled them very hard and his face became like 'ow!' lol)
Hope they will stay a bit longer to brighten up the pond which is more or less duck-less.
These guys must have been happy in the rain:)
