Wildlife Photos: Teal (Anas crecca) in Okinawa


These little ducks had me stumped, for awhile, today.

They were spotted in Tomigusuku, the southern part of Okinawa, Japan.


We don't see many red-headed ducks around here.

That led me to spend a few hours trying to identify the birds.

The duck with the red head and green mask is the male. 

They get those bright colors during mating season. 

The plain Jane-looking bird is the female.
