At about Noon today I saw a duck which I thought was a Blue-wing Teal, but the main body was a bright cinnamon color, like the Cinnamon Teal it was with. There was a white crescent behind the bill on a steel blue head, which blended into the cinnamon color of the body. There was also a white mark forward of the black rear, just like a normal Blue-wing Teal. I did not notice the wing bar but the top of the body was a mottled brown. The duck was bobbing it's head like the Cinnamon Teals it was with (the breeding motion).
