Blue-winged Teals

I walked around the pond off Superior Drive again today and saw plenty of gulls and cormorants and some harder-to-identify avian life forms that stayed as far away from me as they could. As I rounded the corner where the spring channels into the pond, I startled a pair of Blue-winged Teals, who hurried away but were still close enough to get a decent photo. I'm told that in the western part of the state these pretty ducks are more common than mallards.
