Default Cinnamon Teal

One of the prettiest of the teal family. Teals are typically very shy birds but this drake was very cooperative.

You really did a good job. Great color. The red eye is something. Like the reflections too. Looks like everything was working for you.

Steve,

I have seen pictures of teals of different colors. I have seen and photograph a white one.The picture is not very good. Is this one rare? Or, is it something else?

I really made a mistake in identifying this duck. It is a male Canvasback Duck.

Yep, Male Canvasback. I need to find some of these guys. I don't think I have a single picture of a one. Your picture is not bad at all. I do have a picture of a Male Cinnamon teal that didn't quite mature to it's male colors likely due to damaged gonads, perhaps from being shot. It's kind of in between sub-adult and adult plumage. The assessment is not my own I was out with the refuge manager and he was explaining the condition of the duck to me.
