    Any closer and it would have taken the camera away from you.

    Your avatar is a good photo of a "storm" wigeon.

    Please explain 'storm' wigeon. I'm not familiar with the term.

    Rocky pioneered the term "storm wigeon" on this site.

    A "storm" wigeon is one in which the light yellow coloration that is normally found on the just the top of its head continues all the way down its face to its neck.

    Compare the storm wigeon in your avatar with my photos of an ordinary American wigeon taken 12-20-17 at Sprague Pond/Mini Park in Lynnwood.

    I will now pay more attention to individual wigeons in the flocks I see this winter.
