The Cinnamon Teal, Whistling Ducks, and Ruddy Ducks Are the only ducks that breed in North and South America. Yes, teals are ducks.

Their range extends from the western third of the USA through Mexico to the tip of South America.

Cinnamon Teal migrates early in the fall, so only a small number is lost during the northern waterfowl hunting season. Many food critics consider cinnamon teal one of the best-tasting ducks.

The Cinnamon Teal are very small and swift flyers.

Although their numbers are declining due to habitat loss, wetlands destruction, and pollution, they are not considered endangered.

Cinnamon Teal feeding

Cinnamon Teals are dabbers. In other words, they sit on the water's surface, dunk their heads so their tails are up, and then grab vegetation standing on their heads.
