Thought i saw some redheads flying with a group of BWT while scouting today, just wondering if this is common?

(Disclaimer - I am from WA, as far away from Florida as possible and still be in the lower 48. I am by no means and expert on Florida wildlife)

Are you sure they weren't Cinnamon Teal? But it's not uncommon for any specie to be flying with any other species. It could have been happening. After seeing a blue bill flying with a seagull, nothing like that surprises me anymore.

I don't believe it would have been Cinnamon Teal, I have never seen any in the East past Texas. But as said, anything these days is possible.

if not, then they werent redheads

if you saw redheads in florida already, that would be an early arrival for sure...

We see alot of Redheads with the BWT. They're rarely in groups together but they're usually around during the same time of year

They may have been sitting in the same area, and got run up so they left together and had not split up yet.
