American Wigeon (Anas americana) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1210)
Canada (Ontario) Ottawa - the bird is standing on ice. There is a small opening in a pond with a pile of Mallards and a pair of wigeon. Normally you can't get close to most ducks other than Mallards but when conditions force them into a tight area they may lose their inhibition.

Once small ponds freeze solid they'll head much further south. Right now the outlook for next week is a bit warmer with all days above freezing and closing in on 6-7oC. That will free up ponds like this and melt some of the more than 20cm in places on the ground. Merry Christmas
