This late morning (4/7), found a male Cinnamon Teal on the east side of one of the more easterly ponds of the Bass Ponds of the MN Valley Wildlife Refuge. It was prominent with its head and body of reds, dark bill, and the couple of creamy-buffy feathers on its back. It flushed once from the edge of the cattails as I got too close and saw its wing flash of blue and bit of green.It was hanging out with Blue-winged Teal, Northern Shovelers and Coots. A couple of pictures which are not too great are at http://picasaweb.google.com/sueplankis/CinnamonTeal
To get there, I had parked at the top of the hill off of Old Shakopee Road and E.86th St., by Cypress, and it was in the vegetation and the open water of the first pond on your right (west) as you get to the bottom of the hill.
