I am sitting on top of a folding ladder in a makeshift blind. Not one of my easiest shots.

Camera equipment does not define me. They are my tools not my vision.

As others have said, it's a horned grebe. It isn't a duck at all.

Male Common Emerald Dove (Chalcophaps indica) by alabang, on Flickr

The Common Emerald Dove (Chalcophaps indica) is a pigeon which is a  widespread resident breeding bird in the tropical and sub-tropical parts  of the Indian Subcontinent and east through Myanmar, Thailand, Malaysia  and Indonesia, to northern and eastern Australia. The dove is also  known by the names of Green Dove and Green-winged pigeon. The Common  Emerald Dove is the state bird of the Indian State of Tamil Nadu.

It has a number of subspecies, with three existing in Australia,  longirostris from the Kimberly, Western Australia to Cape York  Peninsula, chrysochlora from Cape York Peninsula to southern New South  Wales as well as Norfolk Island and Lord Howe Island, and natalis from  Christmas Island.

This is a common species in rainforest and similar dense wet woodlands,  farms, gardens, mangroves and coastal heaths. It builds a scant stick  nest in a tree up to five metres and lays two cream-coloured eggs.  Breeding tends to occur in Australia spring or early summer in  southeastern Australia and late in the dry season in northern Australia.

Its flight is fast and direct, with the regular beats and an occasional  sharp flick of the wings which are characteristic of pigeons in general.  It often flies low between the patches of dense forest it prefers, but  when disturbed will frequently walk away rather than fly. They are  particularly good weavers when flying through forests. When flying they  expose a buff underwing and a chestnut colour of their flight feathers.

The Common Emerald Dove is a stocky, medium-sized pigeon, typically 23  to 28 centimetres (10 to 11.2 inches) in length. The back and wings are  bright emerald green. The flight feathers and tail are blackish, and  broad black and white bars show on the lower back in flight. The head  and underparts are dark vinous pink (in chrysochlora, more brown in  longirostris), fading to greyish on the lower belly. The eyes are dark  brown, the bill bright red and legs and feet rufous.

RedTail with Dinner

Caught this hawk on the rise after seizing a gopher in the shadow of the GG Bridge while running toward the cliff with my 100-400mm cocked and fired multiple shots on my old 60D to catch this shot.  Very exciting to successfully chase one down finally.
