Blue Winged Teal Duck Decoy
The Blue-Winged Teal is a small, handsome duck that is known for its speed and agility in flight. It has an unusual way of feeding; unlike other dabbling ducks, the Bluewing doesn't usually tip up to feed, instead it skims the top surface of water for plant matter and small insects. The Blue-winged Teal is best recognized in the field for its small size and the crescent cheek markings of the male duck. Female Blue-winged Teal are difficult to distinguish from the female Green-wing and Cinnamon Teal.
