[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Eurasian Teal or Common Teal (Anas crecca) is a common and widespread duck which breeds in temperate Eurasia and migrates south in winter. The Eurasian Teal is often called simply the Teal due to being the only one of these small dabbling ducks in much of its range. The bird gives its name to the blue-green colour teal.

It is a common winter visitor to much of peninsular India. This one showing two male Teals is from last winter, taken handheld at a river wetland.
