Blue-winged Teal with Young in Honey Lake Valley, California.-On June 17, 1941, Jay Dow and I -were driving along the’first road to the north of Hartson Lake in Honey Lake Valley, Lassen County, California. As we crossed a small, wet swale a pair of Blue-winged Teal (Querquedwlu discors) was noted close to the road; with them was a brood of young which was without doubt their own. The male was in full breeding plumage and thus was positively identified.-J. S. HUNTER, Division of Fish and Game, San Francisco, California, July 24, 1942.
