NE Florida - ducks/teals


Recommended Posts

Seen this morning in NE Florida. I apologize for how awful the photos are. The birds were pretty far off and I was using as much zoom as I could, but could not get anything really in focus. Seen in a retention pond with a bunch of common gallinules and a couple black-bellied whistling ducks. They seem rather tealish to me. I'm thinking blue-winged teal as that would be most common around here now.

Well a friend of mine who lives on the pond where these birds were sighted, and got a much better look at them, reported them to eBird as blue-winged teals so I guess I’ll just go with her sighting as she’s a better birder than I am!
