Baikal Teal x Eurasian Teal

 Baikal Teal x Eurasian Teal hybrid, northern Germany - copyright Joern Lehmhus
(plate ID: 0764)

Joern saw these birds (there were two) on a pond with ornamental waterfowl some years ago and took notes on what he saw.  He finished this drawing much more recently so tells us he's not sure it's 100% accurate in all respects, but is reasonably close.  He thinks the scapulars were perhaps a bit darker than shown.
