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.
