An elegant and graceful, long-necked duck, the Northern Pintail has very distinctive field marks and a long tail. During the winter months on Cape Cod, this dabbling duck is found mostly in local freshwater ponds. The Pintail has a pale, chocolate brown head, white neck and breast, gray back and flanks, and a long black bill with gray sides. This Pintail was recently seen at the Mill Pond in East Falmouth.
