Thanks to Betty Lucas/Rita G/Carolyn Fischer for the find and getting the word out on this bird. I observed the Eurasian Wigeon from about 6:45 until 8. Right at dark a large chunk (possibly all) of the puddle ducks lifted off the pond and flew to the west. I'll second Rita's recommendation to bring a scope if anyone goes to search for it tomorrow.
While watching the EUWI I also had a Wilson's Snipe winnow and an American Woodcock peenting in the wet meadow/woodlot on the opposite side of the road from this pond.
