Bird #66 — Green-winged Teal

anas (duck) crecca (the quack note of this duck)

Wednesday, October 3, 1979 — 9:30 am

Barrington, Illinois — Crabtree Nature Center

I birded for six-and-a-half hours this day.  I don’t remember why I had that much time available on a Wednesday.  But I do remember having fun.

The Green-winged Teal was picking in the water and on the shore along the edge of the island in Sulky Pond.  I first noticed it because it was much smaller than the Mallards it was associating with.
