A rarity!


In the eastern part of Canada seeing the Northern Shoveler is rare, very rare. Typically this bird is seen mainly in the Prairies and the U.S mid-west. I could not believe my eyes when I saw it along with the female. The picture here is of the male. I knew that this duck was rare when I saw the bill. A nice bird.
