Mount Pond: Storming Shoveler Squall

Feel the underd[uck]'s experience in large.

Mr. and Mrs. stayed on their island, so I visited Mount Pond where I found an ongoing battle in progress: this aggressive shoveler could not bear the presence of another male (one individual of many; the rest were ignored) and chased him persistently. The cold drove me away before they made their peace; they may still be chasing/fleeing...

The others (several series, and some amusing moments) are on Flickr here (or right from this tentative coot).
