Female northern shoveler
The northern shovelers (Anas clypeata) are migrating south, many currently spending time in Central Ontario- some will remain here all winter.
Male northern shoveler
At first glance, they look a lot like mallards...but LOOK at their beaks - elongated, kinda spoon shaped with comb-like edges to filter out food from water.
