Call your doctor if you experience double wigeon.
There were SO MANY wigeons at the pond that day. A lot of the males were making this whistling sound like a squeaky toy and making a big display of flapping their wings. Duck waving, I suppose you could call it.
The males' heads also had this green iridescence, but I couldn't capture it.
I went back through my photos and found one where you *can* see the green on the male wigeon's head!
Here's a male and a female, plus a coot. The coots were scattered around the entire pond, while the wigeons were mostly at one end (probably not coincidentally, the end where people were more likely to stand around tossing bread into the water. Right next to the sign saying not to feed the birds, especially not bread.)
@eric Sometimes, yeah. I don't see it all the time. They're one of the calmer songbirds we have around here (which is another reason I have so many pictures of them!), but I have seen them do that.
