Northern Pintail (Anas acuta)

I wait all the year until there is winter, and we get the Pintail. They are beautiful.

  3. Beautiful is right, Bob. Their feathers appear so soft and sleek that you just want to reach out and touch them. Fantastic photos.

  6. Bob, they are very elegant! I saw a raft of Pintails on the ocean the other day. There were thousands of them. Quite a sight! I'd never seen that many before.
    Our weather is dismal. Rainfall and wind warnings out. We just had a power outage, but we're up and running again! Weather!!

  14. Dignity personified!
    Made me think of you, Bob:
    " I would rather
    spend my life
    close to the birds
    than waste it
    wishing I
    had wings. "
