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 -


Comments welcome.
