This morning while doing some gull photography at Esquimalt Lagoon, I spotted a very probable hybrid Eurasian X American Wigeon. Bird was a mix of Gray and a soft pink, but the head had a clear eyestripe, Buffy forehead, and the main face colour was a rusty orange gold. Was also larger in size than the Americans feeding around him. I'll upload a picture as soon as I can.

Wow! Thanks for the information! I had never been to Esquimalt Lagoon, and it was great to see him with the Americans for comparison side by side. I imagine it would have been a great shot for all three!
