Almost Wordless Wednesday: Ducks in the Desert

You don't expect to see ducks in the desert, but then Big Bend National Park is defined by the Rio Grande River and, along that river, there are a few ponds. In those ponds, I found a few ducks and other water birds.

 Ring-necked Duck

Blue-winged Teal (females)

Wood Duck

Northern Shoveler (female)

Redhead Duck

Another water bird, the American Coot

And, of course, the iconic American water bird can be found even in the desert - the Great Blue Heron.
