A Correction Concerning the European Widgeon

In the September-October, Condor, 1918, p. 192, I recorded a pair of this duck as bought in the Los Angeles public market. A critical comparison of the female, however, proves this bird to be Mareca umericana, instead of M. Penelope; hence the record of the European Widgeon stands good for the male only.
