Bird #308 — Cinnamon Teal

anas (duck) cyanoptera (from kuanos, blue, and pteron, wing)

Friday, April 6, 1984 — 1:35 pm

Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge, New Mexico

Almost as soon as I saw the American Avocets, I saw the Cinnamon Teals.  They were swimming in a shallow pool near the headquarters building.  Occasionally, one would dip end-up in the water. The pond was surrounded by dry scrub.
