N Shoveler courtship

MIke Egan

Stopping by LLC today the lake was covered with 100+ N Shovelers. As I was scanning across the lake I noticed some birds circling with heads under water. As I looked closer I saw a male and female circling, then another couple, then another. Then it hit me, it was courtship. Over 30+ couples courting simultaneously all across the lake! Quite a sight!
