Eurasian Wigeon (Anas penelope), Page Waste Treatment Plant, Coconino County

This Eurasian Wigeon was photographed by Roy Morris on 28 October 2013

Eurasian Wigeon is a rare fall and winter visitor to Arizona, most regular on ponds and golf courses in the Phoenix area. There are fewer than 10 records for the Navajo Nation region.

Rufous-brown head with buff crown, blue bill with black tip. This individual appears to be molting, with some brown feathers on the flanks.
