New Science Photo of the Day: 13


I photographed this duck today, on my way to town. It spends a lot of its time in deep water, but does not dive for food like other deep water ducks. How does it get its food?

Click here for the answer:

This is an American Wigeon. While they sometimes feed in shallow areas, they frequently feed in deep water. To do this, they stay near other ducks that dive for food, and then steal the food as the other duck surfaces.
