Cinnamon Teal vs. other duck sp.

Well, at least one of them is a Cinnamon teal, I believe, not sure about the birds in the background though. I have no experience with teals.

I only have experience with Green- and Blue-winged Teal, and limited at that.  I read in AAB that Cinnamon Teals are found in freshwater marsh, so I wasn't sure if they would also visit salt marsh.

I will count them as "Duck sp." and note that they were in the company of the CITE.


 

At least do “Blue-winged/Cinnamon Teal”. Based on bill shape they are clearly not Green-winged Teal. In my opinion though it is safe to call all 3 Cinnamon Teal in eBird. As that is what the more expected species is there and they look more like Cinnamons (big bills, plain faces, warm tones).

I trust your opinion, @AlexHenry, so I will change it to 3 Cinnamon Teal.
