Meet the Shoveler by KeldBach Meet the Shoveler by KeldBach
Found a nice little pond a few kilometers outside of town with a broad variety of common water birds. Among them this Northern Shoveler (Anas clypeata) in his colourful breeding plumage. Also see:

They're very shy here and hard to get near to for photos. Those bills are just HUGE, almost disproportionate. ;)
