The Rare, Endangered Piping Duck

This summer, the Missouri River Piping Plover crew discovered a new species, the rare and endangered Piping Duck. It can be seen below, in it's natural habitat.

(I swear, this is NOT an oversized Mallard decoy painted to look like a Piping Plover)

We decided to capture this rare bird, and bring it home for further studies. It can be seen below, brooding it's oddly shaped and sized plover babies.
