Subject: hybrid Eurasian x American Wigeon Date: Jan 1 20:25:57 2000 From: ian paulsen - ipaulsen at linknet.kitsap.lib.wa.us
HI Tweeters: On the Kitsap County, WA CBC today I found a bird here on Bainbridge Island that I believe to be a hybrid Eurasian x American Wigeon. It was a male with a green eyestripe but with cream colored cheeks. I know that a few pure Americans can have Cream colored cheeks, this bird also had flanks that were a mixture of gray and pink. The gray was at theside and the pink was toward the chest. Any comments? Sincerely
