Below is the first set of image taken of Anas carolinensis, the green-winged Teal at Race Rocks.
Ecoguardian Alex Fletcher took this first set of images of green-winged teal ducks at Race Rocks in December 2012.
These ducks are common over on Vancouver Island but we have never recorded them out here before.
I suspect it was because there were many freshwater ponds on the lawns with the heavy rains recently on the island.
Common Name: Green-winged teal.
