American Wigeon

Found this American Wigeon and several others on a small stream near a wooded trail. Here on Long Island (NY), Wigeons visit only during the Winter. Many ducks from cold, Northern climates spend their winters on Long Island. I watch them out in the Atlantic Ocean, as well as back bays and smaller bodies of water. These wintering ducks are among my favorites: I love the variety of bill shapes, as well as the colors and patterns of their feathers.
