Bird Week VI: The Desert / by Dave Hileman

We end our sixth bird week with this non-desert species found in the desert this day, once again at the Henderson Bird Viewing Preserve. This is an male Northern Shoveler in breeding plumage. A striking bird. They feed by skimming water with their beak. 

"We were filled with laughter, and we sang for joy.
And the other nations said,
'What amazing things the Lord has done for them.'
Yes, the Lord has done amazing things for us! What joy!
Restore our fortunes, Lord, as streams renew the desert." Psalm 126:3,4 NLT
