Release! American Wigeon

AMWI

 

Last month, this American Wigeon was found on bustling Pico Boulevard in Los Angeles — hardly a suitable habitat for a dabbling duck.

After several weeks in care, we released this wigeon at El Dorado Regional Park in nearby Long Beach. Volunteer photographer Bill Steinkamp was on hand to film the big day.
