Molting Gadwall

Frequent correspondent ARDITH BONDI writes today [8/26/13] via ebirdsNYC 

For anyone who hasn't had a good view of an extensive summer wing molt in a Gadwall, I happened to capture this in Central Park on the Reservoir last week. I have known about this, but haven't had a duck flap nicely right in front of my camera showing all the pin feathers. Talk about a "sitting duck"
