A Northern Pintail in Phoenix, Arizona. I think the Northern Pintail is one of the nicest looking birds to pass through Seward every spring. I have tried a number of times to get a decent photo of one without success. I even built a blind out of drift wood, had Janine help cover me with camo cloth, and laid motionless for hours, without success. Little did I know, all I needed to do was fly to Phoenix, but on some shorts and drive down to a local park!
