Gadwall

Another of the ducks we saw while out and about on Tuesday.
It was riding the waves on Rondeau Bay.

Anas strepera 
We don’t tend to think of ducks as pirates, but Gadwall often snatch food from diving ducks as they surface. This widespread, adaptable duck has dramatically increased in numbers in North America since the 1980s.
