The cinnamon teals were found near the pond. I at first mixed them up with Mallards however the male was a bright copper color. They were sitting in a nest when I found them.
Two of them in pond, seemed like they were just sitting there for a while
Cinnamon Teal pair in the foreground and other ducks in the background - Montlake Fill
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.

distinguishable by its cinnamon color plumage

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.

This waterfowl is easily identified because of the red coloring on the male. Even with the poor picture quality there is clearly red on its body and watching it through binoculars shows its beak is pointy
