This individual bird, found by Tina Green a few weeks ago, was a bird I should have already gone for. Eurasian Wigeons are regular rarities to CT, with one or two being reported every winter, but until today I had never been able to connect to one. Today Dad and I finally went for it, and I spotted it within 2 minutes of scanning. Luckily, this bird’s a male- females and juveniles are notoriously more difficult to pick out from American Wigeon. The following photos do this gorgeous drake absoulutely no justice, but you can see the differences in overall color from the other wigeon- a much warmer shade altogether.
A great bird!
