These are Northern Shovelers. They have a unique long flattened beak on the end to sift through the bottom sediment for morsels.

The colours on the drake are very nice. It amazes me just how different they look. Nice captures, HBG.

Nice captures HBG. You fooled me with the title. When you said a different kind shovel, I was think of what you use to clear your sidewalk of snow in the winter.
