Flying Pintails

Known as the "Nomads of the Skies," the Northern Pintail ranges widely throughout the world, breeding in northern Eurasia and North America, and wintering as far south as Panama, sub-Saharan Africa, and southern Asia. It is also one of the earliest nesting ducks in North America, beginning soon after ice melts in its breeding range.
