Great find! I can't be sure, but I think this is their first documented
actual nesting in Lincoln County.
The 1995-1999 Breeding Bird Atlas Project has a Green-winged Teal map on p.
106 of Birds of Oregon: a General Reference (BOGR). I have a copy of the
CD, which is also available for purchase at
http://www.orbirds.org/ofobookstore.html that has considerably more
information about this than BOGR. I was unable to open the CD through
Google Chrome but I was able to open it through the FireFox browser (the CD
was originally designed to be opened with the Netscape and Internet
Explorer browsers). Below are two screenshots of GW Teal nesting and
Hexagon 27176 from the CD
Green-winged Teal has "Probable" nesting in Lincoln County for Hexagon
27176 that includes Newport-Toledo see images below. The only field
observation in Hexagon 27176 for this was "27176 P 06 06 96 Don Munson."
For "Probable" nesting, the "P" code is "*P* At least one pair (adult
male and female) seen during the usual breeding season." This could have
just been a late pair passing through.
