5 June 2015

Northern Shovelers are dabbling ducks, meaning that they tip up to feed on vegetation in shallow water, and they do not dive. Look for them on flooded fields and small bodies of water. The green head and chestnut flanks indicate this is a male; both sexes have a distinctive, oversized bill that gives them their name.
