This Cinnamon Teal Was Taking A Swim in A California Pond

Cinnamon Teal

These teals are mostly seen alone or in pairs, never in large groups. They feed by skimming the water for aquatic vegetation. This is a male he is bright chestnut, the female is mottled brown overall. If her young are in danger she may act like she has a broken wing to distract attention away from them and to herself. What a smart mother she is!
