male and female
The same cinnamon teal I saw on Tuesday.
terrible terrible picture of a cinnamon teal, take my word for it though. I could see the pair (a male and a female) clearly and the male was very red.
The first time I've ever seen one of these!
This is a male cinnamon teal swimming. Cinnamon teals, like mallards, are sexual dimorphic. The males have this rich orange color and females are brown. They are about 3/4 the size of mallards.
Cinnamon Teal seen in the Urban Bay Natural Area near UW
distinguishable by its cinnamon color plumage
A male and female sitting on a log right by the edge of a pond in the middle of trees, mostly cut off from view from the trail. 50 degrees F, cloudy.
Seen swimming in one of the ponds in Union Bay Natural Area, there were two "ducks" floating in the water with a very distinctive almost complete red body color They were also slightly smaller than mallards typically. I'm not sure there is any other bird that can be seen in the Union Bay Natural Area that has that same distinctive red/cinnamon color to it.
This red-orange colored water fowl was found on the stream at the UBNA.
