It’s always exciting to discover a new bird, but this American Wigeon had a mysterious halo in the first fifty photos I took. It was probably just a smudge on the lens but it sure did add to the excitement! I was beginning to wonder if he’d let me have a useable photo. Also adding to his mystique was that he was the only wigeon around as far as the eye could see. That, and he has the same awesome mask as The Green Avenger! Ahem, I mean, the Green-winged Teal.
