Most of the time they were like this.  Upside down. Wonder if that is why they are named pintails. :)

A new spieces to me, a lifer. Great! But why are they always on the other side of the wetland? Shot with 500mm lens.

These birds are only resting for a few days before continuing further north. But I am happy as long as they stay.
