    Default Eurasian Widgeon

    I saw a Eurasian Widgeon drake a couple weeks ago over on Kodiak. I was wondering how common they are here in Alaska and how often you guys see them. This is the first one I've seen.

    We live on a slough in North Pole and about 8-10 years ago we had a pair nest near our yard. You can see them in Alaska, but they are not common.
