THE Garganey- A Rare Duck

garganey4

Friends, Crex Meadows was full of birders this weekend and this duck was the object of their affection.  This is a garganey that has never been reported in Wisconsin or Minnesota.  He sure is handsome but moves constantly, today was our first sunny day since he arrived about a week ago.  I guess he wants to stay awhile enjoy while you can til Tomorrow MJ
