Eurasian/American Wigeon Hybrid - Vancouver, BC
Along the seawall at Stanley Park in Vancouver, a flock of Wigeon were working the shore for food. Liron Gertsman was our guide for the day and pointed out the Eurasian in first year molt within the group. On further inspection it turns out it is most likely a hybrid between the American and the Eurasian Wigeon. one of the diagnostics is the very faint metallic green around the eye and extending back in the same location as the American's green tear drop.
