Hi birders,

I was already planning to go out to Avra Valley today to look for the Eurasian Wigeon(s), but thanks to Laurens Halsey's message from last night, I was alert to the need to look very carefully at the wigeons. My feeling is one is indeed a hybrid American x Eurasian Wigeon. I managed some photos of both birds; they are visible here:, along with some notes about the salient features that suggest hybridization.

Good birding,
