I have decided to feature a beautiful duck on this week’s “D50 Archives” feature, the Northern Pintail (en français : Canard pilet | Scientific name: Anas acuta).
In the winter and spring months, they can be found in abundance in certain areas of British Columbia’s (Western) Lower Mainland, including at Delta’s fabulous Reifel Migratory Bird Sanctuary. This is where I took both pictures featured today (in March 2013). I would have liked to include a shot of the understated but lovely female, but I did not find one. Next time I see one with a camera, I will take a few pictures and publish at least one of them in my blog!
