Agree with everything, and have to add for the sake of my pet peeve-ness, they're Wigeons (no d in there).

Actually, if you look hard enough, you'll find Wigeon spelled Widgeon. Basically, it depends on how old your source is, and how they were feeling that day (or how many d's they had in the shop :P ).

EDIT: In response to BarnSwallow:

Thanks! I don't even see them every year; but this year they nested somewhere on the property and I got lots of great looks when the fledglings/juveniles were out bumbling around. :) Would be really cool to have one overwinter.

Nice pics, Cobal!
