Portrait of a Wigeon

Friday, March 13, 2020,

This is a male Wigeon that I photographed at Frank Melville Park in Setauket. These handsome ducks generally only visit Long Island during the winter months. There are still some hanging around but, soon, they will be departing for more northerly climes. I will miss them but their coming and going is what makes each change of season unique and wonderful.
