I have to thank a very nice couple who pointed out the Northern Pintail Ducks to me. This duck pair were swimming among some reeds in a small area and would never have seen them if they hadn’t been pointed out to me. The lighting was difficult because they were in an out of shadows and among the reeds. I am very grateful to have seen these ducks.

Nice looking bird. And, nice photos of it.
Beautiful birds brilliantly photographed.
Thank you very much.
Superb shots, Maralee! I love these beautiful ducks and didn’t get to see many this year except at a far distance out in the marsh.
Thank you Donna. I’m still somewhat new to the birding arena and generally need my ebird app to identify a bird. I was very fortunate to have someone point this bird out. It was in an area I would not have even imagined I would find any ducks.
Did the one duck actually have a blue beak? Wow. Amazing photos Mar!
Yes, it did.
What a find and beautiful captures, Maralee!
love the mirror image composition!
You got a real good look! Aren’t they beautiful? I just love seeing them in sun in the late afternoon or early morning. Congrats for adding another bird to your life list!
