American Wigeon Pair by Kimberly Chadwick


Available to buy on…

Taken at Sweetwater Wetlands Tucson, AZ, Jan 2010

The widespread American Wigeon nests near small lakes and marches in open and semi-open habitats.In winter they are found on freshwater lakes and brackish estuaries, and saltwater bays with aquatic vegetation.

Wigeons often feed around diving ducks and swans , stealing plants those species bring to the surface.

VOICE Male: a wheezy, piping, 2-3 syllab;e whistle. Female: a low growling grrrrr : also a quack.

My goal is to get my name out there among the vast ocean of Natural photographers. To be known for my skill with a Point & Shoot~

My images are not photo shopped. They have only been adjusted with basic sharpening, contrasting & saturation techniques. I believe that in order to appreciate Nature, you have to capture it as it is, naturally.
