Blue-winged Teal is one of the more uncommon ducks in the West. So, I'm always happy to see them. I encountered over a dozen at Robb Field at the mouth of the San Diego River on February 1. One particular bird was really enjoying his bath time!
Shakin' his booty!
Dip under and get covered with water.
Work all the water into the plumage.
Dip under again...
Oh, how do I put those feathers back? Bad "hair" day.
