Following is a link to a picture of the Common Teal seen at Portland
Fairgrounds (in a few pictures). There also is a picture of a Green-winged
Teal which offers a nice comparison. Support for the id of a Common Teal
include the lower scapulars having a clean white edge bordered by black,
the breast is grayish and not as buffy as a green-winged teal and the head
has more white lines than the green-winged teal.  David Sibley wrote a good
article in id'ing these two birds -

I am having some difficulty loading the link for the Common Teal picture.
It works fine before I send it but it is different on CT Birds.  I believe
it may bring you to a series of pictures. If you select Bill Asteriades
2013 Bird Pic's<https://picasaweb.google.com/106804821264340848034/BillAsteriades2013BirdPicS04?authkey=Gv1sRgCNrwr5upxe-WSg>,
you should find it in there.

Regrets,

Bill

when we got there last evening, this was the only "odd" green wing teal, there were only a couple other drakes, and the female didn't catch my eye .....but that doesn't mean much.

It does not appear the link is still working. I will give it one last shot.
Below is the original link.  Hopefully, it works.

Normally go to Veterans Park in Wallingford to see woodcocks displaying, but now I won't have to.? Had 2 male woodcocks displaying and peenting in my backyard around 7:45 this evening.? Our backyard is mostly tilled vegetable garden, with the area the birds were displaying currently boggy and weedy with last years asparagus stalks.? Considering I've never seen woodcocks in Hubbard Park before, having them in my backyard is pretty amazing.? They won't stay around,?because in a couple of weeks my husband will be rototilling the garden and the boggy area will dry up.? If I hadn't gone out to retrieve the feeders from the neighborhood raccoons, I wouldn't have even known the woodcocks were out there.

Based on Keith Mueller's information, it seems I saw a Eurasian Teal at Portland today that was not in full plumage & so I did not see an Intergrade bird. Learned something new...

Our peepers live in kettles. The snow has kept them cold. But finally tonight, the peepers began to sing. Welcome back, friends.

First of all, Thank you to Patrice for bringing this interesting situation to everyone's attention.  Thank You to everyone who sent me pics and posted them as well.  Apparently there are two drakes with one less developed in plumage, and of course that one deserves more scrutiny.  I learned much as well.  There is much variation among intergrades to be aware of, especially since we are not as familiar with them as with the standards.  After looking at over 100 Pics of GWT & EGWTs & Intergrades I have seen enough.  One thing that helped me was to compare the Eurasian to the GWT when, as luck would have it, they swam side by side.  The waterfowl at this location keep shifting around as there is  much suitable habitat in the backlands so good birding Patrice for spotting something out of the ordinary.

Many, many thanks to all of you who reached out with site suggestions for my visit to Connecticut. I can't tell you how much I appreciate all the information you shared.  I'm looking forward to our visit and will share our sightings in ten days or so when we arrive.  Thank you, once again.

Portland fairgrounds, 6:00am to 7:00 am. Eurasian Teal still there.
Yesterday, I too was confused and thought one of the Teals was an American x
Eurasian intergrade adult. This morning I only spotted the adult drake in
breeding colors among the many other Green-winged Teal. The Blue-winged Teal
are still there too.

Thanks to all for the informative postings!
