note the white eyering and different face/body patterns and proportions

To say nothing of the very different and distinctive wing pattern and coloration and the reddish eyes, the last of which is found elsewhere in native ABA-Area dabbling ducks only in male Cinnamon Teal. Additionally distinctive and diagnostic is the bird's face pattern and bill shape.
