When I went out to feed the ducks at Tantra Lake this afternoon, all but one came running to me. Until I took a close look at it, I wondered why one of them held back.
The ones that waddled or flew right to me were Mallards, who knew me well. The one that stayed put looked a little different. When I got close enough to it, I could see that it was an American Wigeon, a newcomer to Tantra Lake.
