This drake duck appeared this spring in a flooded field near Harwood. While showing obvious signs of cinnamon teal genes, this bird also displayed a subdued white crescent bordering its bill making it a blue-winged teal x cinnamon teal hybrid, a non-countable bird according to the ABA rules.

Collections mean things to people. I'm no psychologist but I suppose they represent order for folks; some way of making sense of disparate items by lumping them together in a tidy package.

People will collect just about anything and everything from matchbooks to classic cars.
