Eurasian Wigeon @ Sullivan's Pond (20080113-140054-PJG)

I captured this bird while on a walk at Sullivan's Pond in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Canada on Sunday afternoon (2008-01-13).

 

I first captured this Wigeon at the Pond and then this one. I had never seen either bird breed before, so I asked my friend cage_ee, who is far better at bird identification than I am, to identify this one. He believes it is an "Eurasian Wigeon Male" based on the description at:

identify.whatbird.com/obj/438/_/target.aspx

 

After reading the description, I wasn't sure, as they seem to indicate that they aren't seen in this area.

 

Thank you to cage_ee, undertheturnpike and zach.millen for the identification. It is most appreciated.
