Was going through some vacation photos from last year and found a few photos I'm not sure of. There were some teal in Jackson, WY and I know some (most) of them were Green-winged, but this one had a larger bill. Also looks like there might be some damage near base of bill. Please advise. This was 8/29/2017, Jackson, WY.
Hello, I saw this bird in wetlands in Spain. It was in a wild bird reserve, with apparently a lot of northern shovelers, common teals, common pochards, red-crested pochards and mallard ducks (according to their info boards). I suppose it is one of those. Unfortunately we can't see the colours properly and it was taken from a distance with the sun in my eyes so I couldn't tell. It looked very much like a female mallard - and might be one - but to me the bill looks longer than a mallard's. Is it a teal? Thank you!
