Kayak Fishing in Outside Louisiana
This guy was bobbing in the waves of the open Gulf near Perdido Key, Fl.
This drake blue-winged teal was all alone in the blue-green water of the Gulf.
I came across this guy on Friday kayak fishing in the Gulf about a mile off of the coast of Perdido Key, Florida. While trolling around, I was looking for birds, but this was not what I expected!
A drake Blue-winged teal was bobbing along the waves in the open Gulf. As I got closer to snap a pic, he just swam a little faster. I thought he might be hurt, but as I got closer, he jumped up and flew away.
Perhaps he was coming from wintering grounds in Mexico or South America and just took a pit stop on his way back north.
