Eurasian Widgeon on a pond in Vanier Park

EUWI-Vanier_Park_pond-2015_03_14

Eurasian Widgeon / Canard siffleur d’Europe / Anas penelope: These birds may be found from time to time throughout Metro Vancouver and I photographed this one on the small pond in Vanier Park in Vancouver, BC, Canada. This looks like a male transitioning to full adulthood. Taken with a handheld Nikon D5200 and AF-S Zoom-Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED (ISO 400, 300mm, f/5.6, 1/800). Not baited, called in or set up.
