The Eurasian Teal was still present and cooperative at Bayfront park
yesterday (12 January) during the high tide.


The AOS and eBird currently consider this to be a race of Green-winged
Teal, but the two are genetically quite distinct and other authorities
consider them to be separate species.

Also there was an apparent hybrid Eurasian x American Wigeon hybrid at
Bayfront Park. It looks mostly like a Eurasian and may be a backcross with


Opinions always welcome.

The continuing LESSER YELLOWLEGS was still at Bair Island and I managed a
few distant photos showing it with Greater Yellowlegs:

Somewhat better photos of the bird alone are on my Bair Island eBird

Also included on are images of male, female and immature BARROW'S

Stay well!
