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.
