green-winged teals

As I was biking home from the WREN office (affectionately known as the “red house” because it is, after all, a red house) this evening I spied a cinnamon headed duck in the Amazon creek, in the vicinity of the Elmira Automotive “comfort station”. Luckily the brakes on my cruiser did not flush them! Also lucky that I had my trusty lightweight binocs with me. With the wonderful light and the ducks so close I got some amazing looks at the 2 males and one female. They were near a pair of mallards, of which the male didn’t seem to keen on this trio of smaller ducks.

Here’s a photo from the internet:
