Gadwall

Garretson Point, MLK Shoreline, Oakland, CA

This Gadwall was one of a pair and they were two of only a few birds left at
the vernal pond which has all but dried out. It had just finished preening
after a bath in the remaining water. I blurred out the water/mud background
to hopefully enhance concentration on the bird and its beautifully patterned feathers.
