Re: eur wigeon - zim smith trail.


while not definitive, it's notable while skimming many of the male EUWI photos in ebird that a good portion do have some green behind the eye; usually it's pretty limited -- more of a smudge -- but a few examples show an elongated dark streak reaching back toward the nape. Contrast between the cheek and the rest of the head also varies a fair amount from nearly completely uniform to paler cheeks in some cases, and to much darker, almost black, cheeks and throat in others.
