Gadwall (Anas strepera)

That part of me that loves a Chev Corvette loves those fast, sharp divers like the Mergansers and the Cormorants. But there is another part of me that loves the less racy dabbling ducks as well and here is another unassuming member of the family, a male Gadwall (Anas strepera). It's easy to miss this one (as I have done most of my life) because it is a pretty unspectacular duck that could easily be mistaken for a female mallard since it lacks the bright colors or striking contrasts common to most male ducks.
