Pintail Ducks Foraging

I saw these 2 Pintail Ducks foraging in the mud at Low Tide. They were a pair, One Female, One Male. There were a lot of Pintails at Brigantine this day, scattered throughout the Refuge. Some were in fairly large groups, while these two were off on their own. It was interesting seeing them on the mud flats at low tide, you could see their feet and more of their body versus seeing them swimming in the water. They have very interesting patterns on their bodies and which you can see better here.
