March 11, 2018

Location: Vero Beach, West Regional WWTP

I am a female Northern Shoveler
I'm known as a "dabbling" duck.
This means that I don't dive for my food,
My head goes below water but my tail stays up.

(Confidential to the women I was sitting with at the FrogWatch training: The mystery is now solved. They were not amoebas.)
