At Perkins Pier in Burlington today, along with 120+ Mallards, was one male
Northern Pintail. No need for binoculars on this one. He came up on the boat
ramp with the Mallards to within 10 feet of me. If I had had anything to feed
them, he probably would have come even closer. This is the first I have seen a
Pintail mixed in with the Perkins Pier Mallards. I generally stop by here
several times a week on my lunchtime walks.
