Hi Tweets,

There are high winds and high water at the Edmonds marsh this morning but it was sheltering high numbers of waterfowl. There were only about 20 Green-winged Teals and no Eurasian subspecies among them this morning. There was what I at first thought was a Eurasian Wigeon among the Americans. My photos show green patches on the sides of the head so it is a hybrid wigeon. There was no second rufous-headed wigeon in the flock so we can't add Eurasian to the year count yet. Photos in this ebird checklist: http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist?subID=S21396680 .
