The White Cheeked Pintail is one of the rarest ducks in the US. I spent 10-15 hours waiting for this duck, but was finally fortunate enough to find him. Finding him though, was not the end of the battle. He enjoys staying in the middle of a pack of Blue Wing Teals, but fortunately, I was able to get a few chances at him without other ducks in the way. Hope you all enjoy

This is the first one I've ever seen. So glad you had the patience to wait him out. Love the low angle. Good shooting.

Nice shots, I had not heard of this duck before, only heard and seen the Northern Pintail.

Thank you. I had seen a few at zoo's but never in the wild. This one is confirmed to have no bands and to be a legit wild bird which makes it even more special. Most of the time when these are spotted in the wild, they are zoo escapees.

Thanks Grizz. This guy is actually quite a bit smaller than the Northern Pintails, which happen to be one of my favorite ducks. He is just a little bigger than the Blue Wing Teals.
