Wigeon at Frank Melville Park

Wednesday, December 12, 2018,

This is a male Wigeon. Wigeons are one of several species that I like to refer to as ‘Winter Ducks’, because they and a few other species only visit Long Island during winter. Other of these ‘Winter Ducks’ include Gadwalls, Northern Shovelers, and Hooded Mergansers. There are several other species that come under that umbrella but the Wigeons, Gadwalls, Shovelers, and the Mergansers can often be found at either of the ponds at Frank Melville Park. This park is a magnet for these winter visitors. If you are interested in viewing uncommon ducks, then maybe you should consider visiting Frank Melville. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed. JK

  2. Well, of course it’s unearthly. There’s no dirt in the picture. He’s floating on a pond. 🙂 And thank you Michele. JK.
