Eurasian Widgeon

Anas penelope


Rufous head with tawny forehead patch and white leading edge on wing, as opposed to green head with creamy white forehead patch.


The Eurasian Widgeon was rare in BC but has recently been seen more often mixed in with flocks of American Widgeon, like this individual. In pics 1 and 2, it is the duck at the bottom right of photo and in last pic it is the one stretching its wings.
