New Life Bird – Northern Pintail – Post 37

And to think I had almost turned the key and headed for home.

Nothing much was happening at the harbor; I’d arrived late, long after most of the ducks had moved on up the channel at the harbor.

When all of a sudden, in flew three ducks who landed skerPLASH on the water in front of me.

A pair of Mallards… and  a third duck I’d never seen before.

He had a beautiful chocolate head, white and brown mottled feathers, white chest with a sliver of white going up the neck – and a bluish bill that glowed in the glare of morning light.


He was swimming quickly by, but I was fortunate to get a snap or two as he passed.

I found out later, it was a Northern Pintail drake, another “new life bird”!  Woo HOO!  😉  ❤
