Male 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 2016.
