Toothy grin

A couple of years ago Bird Watching magazine published a photograph by Nigel Blake of a Shoveler with its bill slightly open, displaying the baleen-like 'teeth' within. Here, I hope you can see a similar array of 'teeth' within the bill of this drake Mallard (if not, click it for a larger version). The bird was on Lynch Lake, Ferry Meadows, 5.2.06.
