Default Pintail courtship lights

That should have said, "Courtship Flights".

The Northern Pintails are here in force and the courtship flights are beginning. All the males are showing their stuff hoping a female will find them suitable.

It seems that there are plenty to choose from.

Wow wow wow...

Fantastic photos... I'm glad you shared the 'larger view' - to see how many there are.

Love the colours of these birds, and that first photo in particular appeals to me.

Thanks Paul.
There were probably 10,000 Pintails in just that small pond area of the refuge. There were many more large groups throughout the rest of the refuge that I have access to. Amazing.
I like that first photo tool. I think it's because I was able to get some of the tree tops in the picture to give it a little depth.

Cheers, Steve
