Hi again, thanks to those who already replied about the Darter (who happily all said the same thing!)

I'm really pleased to know this is not a wound, but the preen gland. I have read about that with swans but have never seen it.

Thanks so much,

Hello, I have photographed a Darter at my local north Watson Wetlands these past 2 days and I noticed that the Darter has a wound above its tail. Any comments about whether this is a common bird or Darter type wound, would be appreciated.
Thank you,
Megan Mears
