I was scanning the regular flock of Teal on the lake when I noticed a drake American Green- winged Teal. If you look at my previous entry showing a Eurasian Teal you can see that the horizontal white stripe is replaced by a vertical one up the side of the breast. Also there are less yellow lines dividing the areas of sienna and bottle green on the head. I have been watching the Teal flock all winter and hoping to find this North American species, today I have! I spent a hour or so sketching and photographing the bird in dull light but very much hope it will still be there tomorrow when the forecast is for a fine sunny day.
