2006-08-31: NM: Socorro: New Mexico Tech: Turtle Bay

@TBay: Socorro: New Mexico Tech: Turtle Bay
Birds reported here yesterday I didn't see include Canada Warbler and Great-crested Flycatcher.
Duck, Ring-necked ϕ? @Socorro: New Mexico Tech: Turtle Bay
Description: A smallish duck, maybe 2/3 the size of the big domestic quackers. Bay-duck shape. General coloration middle brown. Irregular light eyering. Bill unicolored dark gray including the bill nail. Not really a good match for any of the candidates. With all the domestic ducks, hybridization is not uncommon here, and there is something that looks like a hybrid of American Wigeon and heaven only knows what else, so this bird may be some oddball hybrid as well.
