Blue-winged teal are lovely ducks that I have the opportunity to see in the winter and spring. The males in particular are easily identified by the white, crescent-shaped patch between the bill and eye. Blue-winged teal have returned to FL in the last month or so, so I thought I'd share a few pictures. These that I'm sharing with you were actually taken back in May during breading season. Well, I suppose that's obvious from the photos, isn't it? These are two happy ducks! These photos are in chronological order, as you might guess.
