Perhaps the most outwardly distinctive of the dabbling ducks, the Northern Shoveler inhabits wetlands across much of North America. Its elongated, spoon-shaped bill has comb like projections along its edges, which filter out food from the water. This Drake is taking flight off a canal next to a levy on Swan Lake National Wildlife Refuge near Sumner Missouri.
