Green-winged Teal Anas crecca

Uncommon breeder in low-elevation freshwater bodies and wetlands on Whidbey Island and in King County lowlands. East of Cascades, scattered mid-elevation records from Keechelus Lake to edge of shrub-steppe zone. Only two "confirmed" records, one near Maxwelton on south Whidbey Island, another near Kittitas in eastern Kittitas Valley. Most likely to nest in wetlands with shrubby vegetation or small trees. Breeding range along Yakima and Columbia Rivers predicted by Washington Gap report (Smith et al. 1997) but not borne out by BBA surveys.
