American Wigeon, Blue-winged Teal and 12 Northern Shovelers.

Observation details

As this flock approached, I thought I detected one bird with a white crown, suggesting American Wigeon, but when they flew past, I could only discern Northern Shovelers. Photo, though, confirms the wigeon (trailing the rest), and a Blue-winged Teal in the flock of 12 shovelers.
