For me, the male Northern Pintail is the Fred Astaire of ducks. He looks elegantly sophisticated as though he were wearing a tuxedo, and his long tail resembles the tails of a gentleman's evening coat He never seems to have a single feather out of place (great capture, Dave). While absent from Eastern Canada in winter, many Pintails over-winter in coastal lower British Columbia and north-west U.S.A. Below, Dave has captured the image of a first-year/juvenile Black-crowned Night Heron, a fairly common visitor to the B.C. coast.
