Hello Tweeters!

I've had a number of discussions with birding experts, both here and with a
volunteer reviewer from eBird, and the consensus has changed: the duck I
originally suspected as a mallard X teal hybrid at the Canyon Park wetlands
just north of Bothell is most likely just a male mallard transitioning out
of eclipse plumage. I'll keep an eye on it over the coming days/weeks to
see how it continues to change.

Sorry for jumping the gun!

Keep watching the skies,
