Pintail Eclipse

Our migrant Pintail is still with us and enjoying the excellent food on offer, wild bird seed, wheat, and poultry pellets.

Originally I thought this was a female but now believe it's a male in eclipse, it appears to be changing and shedding feathers.

If it stays all winter It should develop more striking plumage, I shall watch it closely 

since we both have the daily ritual of meeting for a feed !
