Silver Teal

Anas versicolor

Description:

The silver teal male and female ducks have are easily identified because of their beautifully double colored beak: orange and blue, double colored head: dark brown and whitish beige, and double colored feathers of the body: brown and beige. In this case several of them swam calmly while sharing a peaceful and acquatic moment with other fellow animals.

Habitat:

It can be seen around Southamerica. These ones were spotted at the Capybara´s lake in "Parque Lecocq" reserve.
