A Pair of Blue-winged Teal Hunt For Food While a Wood Duck Looks On
The Blue-winged teal are smaller than Wood ducks and Wood ducks are smaller than Mallards. The male Blue-winged teal has the distinctive white stripe on the sides of it's face, the female is similarly colored to a female mallard but with bolder brown colors. That was a lone male Wood duck. There were many teal and wood ducks hanging out at White Rock Lake that day, but they will move on soon as part of the Spring migration.
