We had 3 Northern Shovelers (2 male, 1 female) on the Connecticut River
just below Ledyard bridge (Hanover) on Sunday. There have been 6-8 other
species here most days for the past week or so, including American
Wigeons and up to 15 Wood Ducks.
>I spied four four ducks with definite oblong cinnamon patches on their white flanks, dark heads and long bills. After scouring the filed guide the nearest I could come to identigfying them was Northern Shoveler
