Wildlife Up Close: Ringed Teal Ducks

Definitely not ducks you’d see in a Metro Vancouver pond are these Ringed Teals — South American natives — at the Vancouver Aquarium. We saw about 6-7 drakes in the Amazonian exhibit. There were no females of their kind present — so even if these guys had managed to fly outside, no (non-hybridized) breeding population could be established. Photographed December 7.
