Northern Shoveler at the Fox River in Waukesha Wisconsin on April 25, 2019

One of my last birding stops today was the Fox River in Waukesha. I check it almost daily in case something new has showed up. Today a Northern Shoveler was the treat giving nice views. It hung around with a couple of Mallards and fed once in awhile along the shoreline of the river. What a beautiful duck! It was a gorgeous day with mostly sunny skies, little wind and a pleasant temperature. Images were taken on April 25, 2019.

    Great photos Jim! I especially like your capture of the bill in the ‘say ah’ photo. You captured the ‘sifting’ apparatus these ducks have for separating out their food. It is something that is not easily seen!
