Spring has sprung

The wood chucks are out and looking like they over slept!
Look at his nose! that's ugly.

But this guy...... He is a whole new story. I had never seen him or any duck like him. So I had to get a few shots and go look him up in my bird books. Nope I couldn't find it? In one book it did not surprise me but the other one I was a little surprised. So I did what I always do when this happens. I sent the picture to my father and gave him a try. Well sure enough my father looked at it and sent me a name but wasn't sure it was right either. So I went on a search and my father was real close, This is a American Wigeon. I could not find anything on them here in Oregon but they are found in Washington (not DC Jag)

The next post will be post number 300 I have something planed but not sure if I will get it done. Stay tuned.

A widgeon? That would be a wonderful thing to say you saw, especially if he came just for you to see.
