Gadwall


A pair of Gadwalls shared the Bass Pond where we found the Northern Pintails of my last post. Like the pintails, Gadwalls are found across the Northern Hemisphere. The origin of the word “gadwall” is not known. There are references to “gaddels” in 1667. You can see that Gadwalls are dabbling ducks, feeding with their tails up in the air. Erika calls them Black-assed Ducks.
