After surfers and snorkelers, I would like to show you the Northern Pintails in synchronized swimming. These ducks are known as dabbling ducks which feed on the surface of the ponds where they land. They first look for things to eat by submerging their heads, then they tip their rear end to look even deeper and catch their food.
The following photos, taken 10 days before the above, show groups of them similarly practicing the art of synchronized swimming. It looks like they got better at it in the final photo!
