About the Cinnamon Teal
Cinnamon Teal is a small, reddish dabbling duck found at the Leonabelle Turnbull Birding Center during winter. The adult male has a cinnamon-red head and body with a brown back, a red eye, and a dark bill. The adult female has a mottled brown body, a pale brown head, brown eyes, and a grey bill and is very similar in appearance to a female Blue-winged Teal; however its overall color is richer and the lore spot, eye line, and eye ring are less distinct. Cinnamon Teals mainly eat plants; their diet may include mollusks and aquatic insects.
