Northern Shoveller in January!

Recommended Posts

A semi rare site for Minnesota in January, I was happy to get this duck as well as some nice sunlight on Sunday morning.

Here he is reflecting on the watery ice.

Thanks, and I don't care to post exact locations on sites (any of them) as it may encouarge more people to go by and "spook" this guy away. I hope you understand and can continue to appreciate the pictures.... I will tell you this much however... I do spend alot of time in the MN River Valley.

Man they are colorful birds. These look nice Mike, and you did a great job on the exposure. Are these cropped at all?

God bless,

Tom W

Thanks for understanding airdriver. wink.gif

Tom, thanks and yes they are cropped, but not too much. Unfortunately the entire reflection of the duck wasn't showing in the photo or I may have down an upright shot as well. laugh.gif

No problem,keeping your spots to your self is one aspect I can understand, being a fellow waterfowler. I have read and enjoyed your pics on the waterfowling section of this web site. After you post your other pics of the shovs, if I find one I like,can I use one as my wallpaper? I have one of shovs from the net, but nothing like your photos.

Ive shot about 300 of em out in california. Spoonies have a distinct smell to em, thats for sure.

Easy to spot a spoony flyin'. They are the ones, when you call, that break off and come right into the decoys while the mallards keep on going! Not the smartest birds.
