Eurasian Wigeon - Anas penelope Barry Edmonston 2017-12-25 Victoria, Capital, British Columbia, Capital (Canada) (20 m) call, male -

This male Eurasian Wigeon is in a large group of several hundred American Wigeons and Mallards. Although the Eurasian Wigeon is not banded, we have seen a male Eurasian Wigeon for the past three years on the same side of the same pond in the same park. He remains in the park during the entire winter. Although he is normally quiet during the winter and we have seldom heard him call before, on this day there was heavy snow and the entire flock was feeding on the grass. The male Eurasian Wigeon calls at 3, 9, and 19 seconds into the recording, when mallards approached him while he is feeding. The recording was made about 2 meters from the male Eurasian Wigeon.

I have a longer recording (more than 3 minutes) and 8 photos of the Eurasian Wigeon, if interested.
