Blue-winged Teal (Spatula discors): Uncommon to Rare spring migrant sometimes lingering into summer, apparently less common in the Fall migration (Rare to Very Rare?).
  • Perhaps overlooked in the fall due to similarity with much more common GWTE?
  • Abundance somewhat variable between communities - more common in the northeast?
  • Breeding records - Juneau, GB? Where else? Annually? Abundance?
  • Early Date 6 April (KTN 2014), more typically May-early June (Sp 2014 QBR)
