Northern Pintail Duck

What day do fish hate?


Interesting Fact: The Northern Pintail is among the earliest nesting ducks in North America, beginning shortly after ice-out in many northern areas. ( )



  1. I’ve never seen anything like this photo. The iced grasses and shoreline in justaposition with the clear puddle and the mud in mid-drip is lovely. I really like the light blues and grays of the ocean background, which make the stark black pins of the Pintail stand out beautifully. Thanks for sharing this beautiful photo. Jan
