Northern Shoveler
Spatula clypeata

It is easy to spot Northern Shoveler from a large group of ducks for it has a distinctive, large shovel-like bill. Northern Shoveler usually feeds in shallow water by swaying its bill back and forth in water. The toothed edges of their broad bills help them to filter-feed on seagrass, seeds and worms in water or in mud.
