(May 10, 2016) This example of a Cinnamon teal (Anas cyanoptera) is a perfect specimen for this area. Happily watching things on the Conservancy’s preserves, field crews photographed it yesterday. You can find this bird in far distant locations around the world.
Even though it is not one of the NBHCP’s “Covered Species,” we’re glad it has made a stop on the Conservancy’s preserves again this summer.
I have no idea why this is, but whenever I see this rust-colored bird on the preserves, it always catches my eye.
