Hi, new to the tweeters mail list. I am hoping someone can/will verify the bird in the attached photos as an Eurasian Wigeon as this would be a first time viewing of this species for my wife and I. Also wondering if members of the board would consider this a reputable bird for adding to one's "life list" or is this more considered a "park bird" like some of the domesticated birds that get loose and are then spotted in parks (ie Mute Swan).

There were two ducks with the coloration shown in the attached photos mixed in with a flock of about 100 American Wigeon.

Very sorry about the fuzziness of the photos as this is my first attempt at digiscoping and obviously I need more practice.
