January 31st, 2014 – Avian Friday: Northern Shoveler
Not a whole lot to say this week on Super Bowl weekend except GO HAWKS!
I did manage to make a brief bird outing a couple of weeks ago, but low temperatures, overcast skies and lack of many species made pickings pretty slim. Here is a shot of a female Northern Shoveler. I posted an image of the more colorful male counter point several weeks ago.
