Green-Winged Teal

If you’re looking for ducks, the best place to find them is in the marshes.

These are more pictures from the Baylands.  Each one of those little bumps is a sleeping duck.

Green-Winged Teals are beautiful ducks.  The male is below.  I particularly like the yellow near his butt.  It’s a great marker when you’re looking at different types of ducks from a distance.

Having become very used to seeing only Mallards, these guys are so different!  He has a very spotted front.

The females look just like female Mallards, except the color on the wing is green instead of purple.

Here is a female Mallard for comparison.

Like American Avocets, the Green-Winged Teal also searches the mud for food.
