Possible Wigeon Hybrid
Hansun Hung sent me a photo of a female Wigeon that has unusual
markings. He photographed this bird at Upper Newport Bay at the end of
San Joaquin Road about a week ago. I posted it in the photo folder
titled "Wigeon (Hyb). A normal female American Wigeon is behind it in
the same picture for comparison. My guess is that it is some form of
hybrid. Any comments?

- Hello Al,
Interesting photo. The bird looks smaller, this of course could just be the
angle that the picture was taken. Is there a size difference? If so how
