  • Gadwall ID confirmation please

    Took this photo today. I think it ia a Gadwall but the head doesnīt seem right.

    Very long distance so rather bad quality I am afraid.

    Thanks,

    A drake Gadwall it is! Generally grey plumage with black stern and white in speculum give it away.

      Thanks Paul,

      I just canīt figure out why the head is so dark and even in color. It has me confused. Can you help me out here?

        gadwall

        It's just the light. The bird is being lit from behind so the head is not looking as bright as the rest of the bird.
