Hello, tweets.

I dithered over the identification of a duck we saw on the canal along the auto tour route at Ridgefield NWR on 23 September, but now I’m convinced that it was a juvenile Redhead, surprising to see it there. It was very plain light brown all over with a slightly more reddish-brown head, dark gray bill with black tip, and yellow-orange eyes. I wondered if that species might be uncommon enough there to merit reporting, so I’m doing so! At least no one has reported it there on eBird this fall.
