Paul Lehman was the editor of Birding magazine from 1989 to 1997, and 
it's probably safe to say that he's one of the best birders in the 
country. He just called from the Hillsborough County Cinnamon Teal site 
and asked me to post the grievous news that the teal is "clearly a 
hybrid." He says that he observed faint crescents on the face, more 
obvious on one side than the other, and that they point to a Blue-winged 
Teal in the bird's ancestry.
