Green-Winged Teal Duck! -Males have a mocha colored head, while females do not. Both, though, have the very distinct teal patch of feathers on their wings. -Smallest North American Dabbling Duck!
-Second most harvested duck in North America :(
-Wintering flocks can be as big as 50,000!
The oldest known GWT was 20 years and 3 months! She was found in Oklahoma.
-Though they are commonly mistaken for other types of ducks, because of their smaller bodies and shorter bills, once up close, they can be identified much easier. #birds#birdfacts#GreenWingedTealDuck
