Subject: [OrangeCountyBirding] teal hybrid returnee
A male Blue-winged x Cinnamon Teal hybrid was along the Goldenwest edge of
Talbert Lake on the east side of Huntington Central Park this afternoon. My
only previous encounter with this bird was on this same lake over two years
ago. On that occasion, I speculated that it might be a second-year bird, in
part due to some retained uppertail coverts. However, this bird also has
retained uppertail coverts, as well as matching the previous bird in nearly
all respects. Curious stuff.
