Today we spotted a few teals, male and females. Teals (in Dutch: Wintertaling) are small dabbling ducks and especially the males have a beautiful color pattern. Their heads are chestnut coloured with broad green eye-patches, a spotted chest and a black-edged yellow tail. Females are mottled brown.

The first photo shows a teal couple enjoying the few hours of sun one can get during wintertime. On the left the male and on the right the female teal.

Here you can see very clearly the chestnut coloured head and the broad green eye-patches. Also the spotted chest is clearly visible.

And this photo shows the black-edged yellow tail which really is an eye-catcher. Just lovely small ducks to watch.
