DSC_0851 - American Widgeon coming in for a Landing...

PLEASE, NO invitations or self promotions, THEY WILL BE DELETED. My photos are FREE to use, just give me credit and it would be nice if you let me know, thanks.

 

The American Wigeon can be found all over North America. Their breeding grounds stretch from Alaska across the tundras of Canada all the way to the Atlantic Ocean. The American Wigeon can be found in their wintering habitats from the American Northwest to central Mexico, from the southern prairie pothole region through the Gulf Coast and from New York to the Bahamas close to the Atlantic shoreline. Female American wigeons lay an average of 9 eggs.

Why does the USA (and other countries) import things from China, Mexico etc.. Items are made cheaper there because of cheaper labour. To have a trade balance, increase the hourly rate paid to everyone in the world to the same level, or lower the hourly wage paid in the USA which will not happen.

 

I usually buy a Honda Accord but this time I bought a Honda CR-V, Accord is made in the USA, CR-V is made in Canada. I make trips to the USA at east once a year but since Trump got in I have not crossed the boarder.
