Blue-winged teal

We often see these blue-winged teal at Brazos Bend State Park, neat little birds, usually forgotten in the mass of more glamorous birds seen there.

These are American dabbling ducks that migrate south in winter and then breed from northern Texas upwards. They do have a pleasing neatness!
