American Wigeon, Gilbert AZ

I remember my excitement the first time I saw this bird in the sense of realizing it was a new bird for me.

I still enjoy watching them at the artificial fishing pond about a block from our winter rental hone, and trying out various photographic techniques on them.

American wigeon landing on pond, wings outstretched and water spraying.

    Is he/it landing or taking off? I suppose I should be able to tell from the wing position, but I can’t.
