The Washington Gap Analysis Project created breeding bird maps only. The non-breeding birds (e.g., wintering, pelagic (coastal), and birds expanding their ranges) are represented only by NatureMapping sightings.

Species Distribution Information

This wigeon is seen in the State of Washington in winter only. It is a regular winter visitor along both coasts, more common in the west; casual inland. These birds probably reach us from Siberia, one of the many nesting places.
