Add a New Bird to My List: Gadwall Ducks
Gadwall duck pair, Anas strepera, at the Old Mission Dam, San Diego, CA. Always a nice surprise to see a brand new bird in an old, familiar spot. These ducks breed in Northern N. America and spend their Winters South through Mexico, Africa and India! These are lake and pond ducks. While I've seen Mallards and Coots at this particular pond, these are the first Gadwall Ducks.
