I found a male green-winged teal in the wetlands of Magnuson Park that was lacking the white breast stripe. I could not see the lower scapular stripe. Not sure if the other characteristics indicate Eurasian green-winged teal (Anas crecca crecca)or an intergrade American/Eurasian or just a plain American green-winged teal (Anas crecca carolinensis). Comments would be welcome.
