Baking: Eurasian Wigeon



Anas penelope

Length: 16-20 Weight: 1-2 lbs


Male has a rusty red head and a buffy forehead, with a black rump/tail. Female has a similar brown mask.



Common throughout Europe and Asia, but only an occasional visitor to North America, mostly along the Pacific and Atlantic coasts.

Cool Facts:

Eurasian Wigeons have not been recorded breeding in North America yet, but their fairly regular visitation suggests this is either already occurring, or may begin in the future.
