A small group of various ducks and American Coots, about fifty or so, was gathered near the edge of the Black Point Wildlife Drive. They didn’t pay much attention to the birders and photographers that stopped to have a look on this morning.
This Northern Pintail pair found each other in the group…
…then went about their business.
Some of the pairs took off as others landed, a constant changing of the group throughout the morning.
This is the closest I’ve seen a Pintail and was delighted to see how gorgeous they are.
