White-cheeked Pintail – Napping

Sleeping Galapagos Pintail/White-cheeked Pintail

White-cheeked Pintails are not too concerned about having thirty-plus people around their nap area. This bird was about as mellow as any duck I have been around in the wild. We encountered this bird while watching the Galapagos Giant Tortoises at Santa Cruz Highlands on Santa Cruz Island. Santa Cruz Island is one of the several islands and islets of the Galapagos Islands, Ecuador.
