O'Neal Lake
Hatchie NWR, Haywood County, TN

One Eurasian Wigeon is still at Hatchie NWR as of this morning, Feb 17,
 About 90% of the lake is ice, so ducks are concentrated in 3 small areas.
The Eurasian Wigeon was swimming in an open area near the NW corner of the
lake, adjacent to an American Wigeon and in a large group of mostly Gadwall.

Good waterfowl study overall, waterfowl only list:

Canada Goose
Gadwall
American Wigeon
Eurasian Wigeon
Mallard
Shoveler
Pintail
Green-winged Teal
Redhead
Ring-neked duck
Hooded Mergamser

Also, White Pelicans are not too unusual on the lake, but I did a double
take on 1 lone pelican standing on the roadside . . . . .see picture.
