Photo Of The Day – Northern Pintail

Title: Northern Pintail

Location: Freeland, Whidbey Island, Washington, USA, North America

Description: Found a new bird. Well, not really new, new, but new to me. It’s happening less frequently as when I took up birding last month so that makes it a little more exciting, I suppose.

This is a Northern Pintail. It’s a duck. I used to think there were just ducks and that’s it. Turns out there are about a billion different species, give or take.

Find me on eBird if you want more bird photos.

I’m excited to be heading to Central America to teach photography in November and December of 2017 in Costa Rica and Panama. One trip is from Costa Rica to Panama, including a transit of the Panama Canal and a number of National Parks and islands, while the other is the same itinerary in reverse.

I’d love to see you on either trip and you can save $200/cabin by using code CH2U117 when booking either of those Costa Rica/Panama itineraries. Click here or email me for more details.
