Default American Wigeons in my neighborhood lagoons

Inspires by smac's series of American Wigeons series, I took some pictures of a pair of Wigeons on a lagoon a block away from my house. I haven't seen Wigeons before in my neighborhood lagoons, now they are seen here regularly because of the drought in other parts of the Bay Area.

Nice and sharp. The green reflection adds alot of interest also. They look like a happy couple.

Thanks! The male wasn't very happy in the beginning. He was swimming around by himself making call for his mate. His call was quite unique and was not like the quacking sound the Mallards used. He was really happy when he found his mate among a bunch of Canvasbacks. Then the couple swam away happily to the other side of the lagoon.
