Duck Decoys | Cinnamon Teal Decoy by Phil Galatas
Cinnamon Teal Duck Decoy
The Cinnamon Teal is something of an enigma; for it bears much resemblance to the Blue-winged Teal, yet has much in common with the Shoveler. The Cinnamon Teal obtains its food by using its well developed lamellae located at the sides of its bill for sifting small plants and animals out of the water. Cinnamon Teal are often parasitized by Redheads; in some areas, up to one quarter of the eggs in a Cinnamon Teal's nest belong to a parasitic duck. In such cases, the Cinnamon Teal is wont to lay a smaller clutch and is more likely to desert.
