Great looks of the Shelduck in open water from the bridge on the Waite St. causeway.
Seen from 1:30pm 'til at least 3:30. Close enough looks to see that there are no leg bands.
Arne believes it's a female. An absolutely gorgeous bird! It may stick around for a while.
Thanks to Flo McBride and Nancy Rosenbaum for the "heads up!"
