Seen today (2 pm) at Squaw Creek:   Single dark puddle duck consorting 
with snow geese at SW end of main refuge pool.  Mallard size. Totally 
dark bill.  Upper body dark brown, lower body chestnut color.  Green 
speculum and  green uppertail coverts.   Legs either dark yellow with 
black spots (like a gadwall) or orange.  Dark eyes, possibly red.  Any 
ideas?

Perhaps Tommie Rogers has seen it??  Dipped on the Cinnamon Teal.  Eagle 
was standing on the edge of the nest -- possible babies?
