3/13 – Eurasian Wigeon, Ash Creek

Dave Hursh and I spent a few hours birding a few spots in Fairfield and came up with the following highlights:

Southport Beach: 25 Bonaparte’s Gulls

Ash Creek: 1 male Eurasian Wigeon, 2 Green-winged Teal

I was able to spot the wigeon from far off and noted how similarly it looked in comparison to the bird seen in Bridgeport a few weeks ago in terms of the dirty, peach-brown color it had on the breast and underside.
