Visiting Blue-winged Teal
For some reason, every spring we seem to have a pair of blue-winged teal that visit us for a week or so on their way north. Their visit seems late this year, but then maybe it's just that everything else is so early! (I have to wonder if it's the same pair, too, or if it's just coincidence that I see a pair each spring.)
The teal are usually very spooky, but I was able to sneak up on them yesterday and get a couple photos before they flushed. I appreciate their generosity in letting me capture their image for my photo album.
