Northern Shovelers

Here's another sign of how cold it has been in Victoria recently. Usually these Northern Shoveler Ducks are not seen on the shores of the Inner Harbour. Normally they like to hang out where they can root around in shallow fresh-water ponds such as are found at Rithet's Bog or Panama Flats. However I suspect these ponds are mostly frozen over now and that explains the presence of these Shovelers along the West Bay Walkway on Thursday.

What a striking looking group, particularly that middle male.
