Río Guadalfeo, Granada Province, Spain

Of unknown Origin?????? but very wild looking.

Wood Duck (Pato Joyuyo / Aix sponsa) male.
I went to a spot along the Rio Guadalfeo with Friend Juan where we spent quite a while looking for a reported Wood Duck (Pato Joyuyo / Aix sponsa) which was extremely wary and showed for just a few seconds before diving back into the reeds.
