Cinnamon teal x shoveler is an interesting thought. The bird is hanging with a small flock of shovelers. The bill on cinnamon teal is usually between that of blue-winged teal and shoveler in size and shape. One thing I see in the picture, which was not apparent in the postures that I was able to observe through the scope, is the pale area near the rump. That might also suggest some shoveler heritage?
