    That was cool, I've never seen one land like that before, but usually the water is rougher when I see one land.

    :cool:

    I like that left wing low approach with the left foot drag before the sliding belly landing!

    Was there a mate around somewhere to show off for? Perhaps ... just having fun!

    I thought the same thing, looks like a Canada goose to me, but I'm no expert.

    I am pretty sure I have never seen a duck land gear-up before.

    Will there be an FAA investigation?

    It is indeed a mallard duck. Notice ring around neck among a bunch of other differences

    It is neither a Duck nor a Goose. It is a Loon.

    I like the sound effects on landing. Notice the wheel chirp!

    You know what, you are right! I should've known that, I have 2 swimming around near me now. You can tell partly by the legs which are too far back for a duck or goose.

    Of all the water fowl, the Loon is my favorite. Their call is absolutely beautiful and can be a bit haunting right around sunset.

    I have a video of the 2 near me calling out and trilling. Don't have it hosted though, or I'd load it.
