Eurasian Wigeon (Anas penelope) User: lou_dav  (See all photos - 1086)
Canada (British Columbia) The male might be a Hybrid Eurasian/American Wigeon as the head is whitish. The female appears to me to be an American.

I saw a definite Male hybrid in the Okanagan recently and he had the White rather than Buffy head patch.

Nice to see up so close. We don't have that opportunity in the East. The male Eurasian has that head feathering. It is not all brown.
