More beautiful photos! I don't think I've seen that imported wigeon but it's a beautiful bird. Are you shooting from a blind in Colusa? Last I shot there was 6-7 years ago on the s/w corner and time for a revisit. Take care and I always enjoy your snaps.

Hi Jim, Thanks!

No blind. All of these were shot from the wood platform at the start of the auto tour. The ducks are within 10 feet of the platform and pay lookers and photographers no mind. And they all mingle together: Shovelers, Pintails, Wigeons, and a few Snow Geese and Greater White Front Geese. Oh and the usual coots.

If you go, as you near the end of the loop, look along the far side of the creek bank and you will see about 100 Black Crown Night Herons in the trees and and on the bank.
