American Wigeon
 
American Wigeon

Here's an American wigeon walking on the beach. Yes, it's a wigeon, not a pigeon!

It's interesting how this duck's coloration must help it hide from predators. Its colors are the same as the colors you can see in the habitat around it—green, brownish red, light sandy brown, and black.

Scientific name: Anas americana
