Default Colusa Refuge Variety

It was a gorgeous day to shoot pictures at the refuge. This was a very popular snag with the ducks. It was placed about 20 yards away from the viewing platform. Two hen Pintail and a drake on the right and a drake American Wigeon on the left. There were two more male Pintail waiting for a spot to open up.

Great variety of everything! I can wait to get up there at the end of the month. Hopefully, some rain may fill the ponds to enhance the condition a little better.
