American Wigeon flying photo
American Wigeon,   Photo Image # AMWI 5789

The beautiful iridescent green behind the eye and in the speculum wing feathers can be seen in this photo of an American Wigeon drake flying.  He's just taking off and is following through on a strong wing beat.  The 3-part whistle of the American Wigeon can be heard a long distance, identifying them before they are seen.
