Male and Female. This was the first time I'd seen this type of duck. Apparently it's not common to Newfoundland.

WOW, an astounding sighting. good photos too. I have only observed one in the past 10 years. only a very few in my life. It would seem the posting ones are nesting. but then I am not a bird watcher.

Thanks, Sam. Do you remember where you saw them?

I responded to your comment, but I don't know why or where it disappeared to!!!!DARN!!!. Anyway, I will do it again. I observed the Northern Shovellers at Souithern Bight, Queen's Cove, Trinity Bay. About 1 KM from the TCH. See my post of may 27, 2015. I don't know if they are very common, they are very rare to me. (layman). I don't know if there have been any more sightings, . I didn't get any comments on my posting. I have no other information.
