This evening there was a female EURASIAN WIGEON associating with several
male American Wigeon in the far SW corner of the Hillman Marsh Shorebird
Cell. The bird showed a rich reddish/orange cast to its brown head, and
lacked the black spot at the base of the bill as shown by female
American's. Other highlights were a Marbled Godwit and a 3rd alternate
Lesser Black-backed Gull.

Good Birding!
