Pirmin Nietlisbach et al. found a Common Teal today. The bird was seen from the taxi pull off at Tsawwassen Ferry Jetty (N side of Jetty). The bird was swimming to and resting on the gravel spit with a group of Green-winged Teals.

Here is a photo Pirmin got by digiscoping:

I think it depends who you ask- I'm pretty sure that many organizations, particularly in Europe, treat it as a different species. The AOU, which we follow to in North America, treats it as a subspecies.
