Eurasian Teal, (bird on left) Village
Creek, Tarrant Co., Feb 1st, 1994; REMAINS THE ONLY DOCUMENTED RECORD
Green-winged ("Common") Teal (Anas crecca
crecca/A. c.nimia). One adult male was photographed in east Fort Worth, Tarrant
during its stay 30 January - 1 February 1994 (MR, JWS, EW, MP;
1994-135). Lacking any evidence of captivity, this
bird was unanimously considered to be a naturally occurring
vagrant and, as such, provided the first fully documented
Texas record of "Common" Teal.
