Species
4 species (+1 other taxa) total
1
Blue-winged x Cinnamon Teal (hybrid)

Appeared to be a typical male Blue-winged Teal, but eyes were bright red. Presumably not a 1st-generation hybrid, but the red eyes are indicative of Cinnamon Teal ancestry at some point. Hybrids of these two species are fertile, so backcrosses are possible.
