Blue-winged Teal Wing Stretch

.

After spending a little time preening, this male Blue-winged Teal did the wing flap/stretch.

It was as if he was thanking his audience….

  1. I like this duck too! Two years ago Saw them in the South of Peru. Your pictures are lovely and funny at the same time. Good job, Donna. 🙂

  2. It took me awhile to figure out why this bird was called “blue winged”. Great job showing his flash of blue (green?) so beautifully. And an additional thanks to the duck as well! 🤗
