This luecistic duck was photographed at Lake Abert in Lake County on Monday. Her pigment situation didn't seem to curtail her reproductive capabilities. This brood was associating with some eclipse pintails so we got a few seconds to compare shape with them. It looked to match the shape of the others so I called this one Northern Pintail. Any duck lovers out there see something else?
