Teal are a type of dabbling duck found primarily in freshwater areas and characterized by its short neck and brightly marked, distinctive plumage (usually including a patch of bright color on its wing). Teal feed on the surface of the water, wiggling their flat bills as they swim slowly in order to catch aquatic insects. Unlike other dabbling ducks, teal prefer to feed at the surface instead of tipping up to forage beneath the water.
