Bosque Del Apache NWR, New Mexico

Dawn approaches behind the San Pasqual Mountains as a Northern Pintail feeds quietly on the water. Thanks to Thomas Schwab on the bird ID.

Thanks, Thomas. You are right. This is a Northern Pintail.

The best pictures of Bosque del Apache I've found on the web! But I believe the last picture misidentifies a pintail as a Northern Shoveler.
