Comments:
Real short trip out to the freshwater pond in search of the Black Terns that had been reported. Did not see the Black Terns in my 10 minutes of scanning the pond repeatedly. Couldn't spend alot of time due to the dogs being in my car in the parking lot after picking them up from Erik's place.

Cinnamon Teal

Blue-winged x Cinnamon Teal (hybrid)

A different bird than what I have seen here earlier in the season. Looked almost intermediate in tone between Blue-winged and cinnamon Teal; more Cinnamon in terms of bill proportions (It was swimming clsoe with both Cinnamon and BLue-wing males) but without the white crescents on the face. I didn't have my camera on me so no photos.
