Cape Teals

Cape Teals
The Cape Teal is a dabbling duck of open wetlands in sub-Saharan Africa.
This species is essentially non-migratory, although it moves opportunistically with the rains. Like many southern ducks, the sexes are similar. It is very pale and mainly grey, with a browner back and pink on the bill (young birds lack the pink). The Cape Teal cannot be confused with any other duck in its range. It is a thinly distributed but widespread duck, rarely seen in large groups except the moulting flocks, which may number up to 2 000. This species feeds on aquatic plants and small creatures (invertebrates, crustaceans and amphibians) obtained by dabbling. The nest is on the ground under vegetation and near water. This is a generally quiet species, except during mating displays. The breeding male has a clear whistle, whereas the female has a feeble "quack". Taken at Sylvan Heights Bird Park. No processing or touch-ups
