Passing American Wigeon

American Wigeon, Anas americana, in flight. Sadly, it was flying away rather than posing for pictures but it's still a decent shot. Ducks are tough to ID from the underbelly but luckily the ID book has undershots and, given the number of wigeons in the park at the time, it seems like a good guess.

Love this.

My sister's going to give me her old camera so I'll be able to start taking more and better pictures of the flora and fauna of NW Washington and British Columbia soon. No idea what everything's called though!

I am totally looking forward to it! NW Washington and BC have some truly beautiful flora and fauna. A little google hunting typically will yield the name or something close. ;-)
