1
Eurasian Wigeon

Molting male in the marsh, still appeared to be mostly in non-breeding plumage rather than breeding. Bright red/rufous head, thought I noticed some faint pale patch on forehead but could be wrong, mix of gray&rufous body. Size shape and bill all same as AMWI. I found no reason to suspect a hybrid.
