Last November a Common (Eurasian) Teal, *Annas crecca,* was found on West
Island, Cocos Keeling.
I am wondering if anyone on the list, especially those with experience with
Indonesian birding, has heard of any records of Common Teal occurring south
of the equator in the Asian region. They are a bird know for being a vagrant
to many areas and there are plenty of reports for Singapore, Hong Kong,
China, Korea etc but I can't find any for Indonesia or elsewhere south of
The only place that I know they are regularly seen south of the equator is
in Africa. They have also been split from the American Green-winged
carolinensis*, and that is known from South America as well as Hong Kong so
if there are any reports of this species south of the equator in Asia I
would like to hear of them too.
