Eurasian Wigeon at Tommy Thompson Park in Toronto
Male Eurasian Wigeon (right) with
Redheads and Greater Scaup at Tommy Thompson Park in Toronto on 6
March 2016. Found by Garth Riley on 5 March.
Smaller than a
Redhead and with similar head colour and distinctive creamy
forehead. Tommy Thompson Park on 6 March 2016.
It was very active feeding from the
surface, maybe scavenging what the diving ducks were feeding on and
bringing to the surface. This is typical wigeon behaviour. 6 March
