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.
Blue-winged Teal (females)
Northern Shoveler (female)
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.
