Blue-winged Teal Anas discors

Fairly common in summer in freshwater bodies in King County lowlands, but just two "confirmed" BBA records near Auburn. Rare in Island County (no "confirmed" records) and absent from Kitsap County. In Kittitas County, scattered records include two from Kittitas Valley (one "confirmed"). Single record along Columbia River barely supports breeding predicted there by Washington Gap report (Smith et al. 1997). Occurrences from higher elevationsâe.g., record of 14 June 1992 in Gold Creek Valley in Kittitas Countyâas well as many lowland records may represent migrants, since spring migration for this species continues well into June.
