Anas cyanoptera (Cinnamon Teal)

The Cinnamon Teal is a small dabbling duck native to the marshes and ponds of western North and South America. Males boast a striking cinnamon-red plumage, while females display a more subdued brown. These ducks are migratory, breeding in the western United States and Canada and wintering as far south as northern South America and the Caribbean. They feed primarily on plants but may also consume mollusks and aquatic insects. Recognized subspecies inhabit various regions, from the Andean highlands to the lowlands of Peru and Argentina. As of now, the Cinnamon Teal is classified as 'Least Concern' by the IUCN​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​.
