Subject: [MDBirding] Shovelers in the Turning Basis

Between at least 1 and 2 PM today, there were five Northern Shovelers in the Turning Basin just upstream from Riley's Lock. 3 males in gorgeous breeding plumage and 2 females.

In over 25 years of walking the towpath, I don't think I have ever seen this species in the canal. If I am mistaken, it certainly was not in February!
