From Natural History of Southeast Alaska
|SE Alaska (edit)||U||R||U||R||Y|
|Glacier Bay (edit)||U||R||U||U||-|
|S Outer Islands (edit)|
Rare to Uncommon in winter, with patchy distribution, and some locations regularly hosting dozens of birds. (e.g. near GUS and JNU)
- Haines and Skagway really so different?
- Any more recent breeding occurrences than mentioned in Kessel + Gibson?
SEAK QBR Mentions:
- W2011-12: Although the Gadwall is found throughout SEAK during the winter, it is generally rare (Kessel and Gibson 1978) or locally uncommon. Forty Gadwall at GUS 19 February was a large count for anywhere in Southeast during the winter and matched an old report of 40–50 at the Excursion River 23–24 December 1958 (Wik and Streveler 1968).
- Su2012: 11 at Mendenhall Wetlands on 3 July
- W2012-13: 49 at JNU 11 February 2013 provided a new local high count. This species is a rare to locally uncommon winter visitant in SEAK.
- Sp2013: 75 Gadwall, probably wintering birds, at Port Krestof, Kruzof Island, 3 March was an exceptional count. This species is a rare (Kessel and Gibson 1978) or locally uncommon migrant and winter visitant in SEAK.
- W2013-14: Nice counts at JNU included 39 on 30 January and 48 on 3 February. A high count of 32 near GUS, 23 February was about average at that location for recent winters. This species is a rare or locally uncommon winter visitant in SEAK.
- W2014-15: A rare or uncommon winter visitant to Southeast but larger numbers are found locally, for example, in the GB and JNU areas. This winter’s high count of 46 at the Sheep Creek delta, JNU, 9 January just about matched high counts at the same location over the past two winters.
- W2016-17: 34 was the high count at a traditional wintering area at Sheep Creek delta, near JNU, 9 January.
- W2017-18: A rare or uncommon winter visitant to SEAK, but larger numbers are found locally, for example, in the GB and JNU areas. A count of 59 at Juneau’s Sheep Creek Delta 4 February established a new local high count and 41 at GUS 7 January was among the larger counts for that location.
