What can I say? I’m frantic and hunting for a filter
for all that needs doing right now and
whammo! I spy the Northern Shoveler:
Very distinctive glossy green head; black bill and back;
white chest; chestnut-brown flanks and belly; yellow eyes.
NS’s bill is elongated, spoon-shaped
& edged with 110 comblike projections–
a superb tool for straining invertebrates from the water.
Sustenance. Like I need. What can I say!!
