Pintail - Anas acuta

A pintail is very similar to a mallard but is smaller in size. The drake has a brown head, and a grayish back. It also has a sharp long pintail. The hen, on the other hand, appears exactly like a mallard hen but it is smaller in size.

Where there is no ice on the lakes, the pintails are usually present there. When the lakes are iced up, they could be seen along the shore where there are tide pools. The pintails are present around this area but they are hardly seen.

The pintails take to flight in exactly the same way as the mallards. They go straight up, and once they reach their altitude, they start going forward.

The pintails are here during winter. I don't know whether they are here in the summer. During the summer when they are nesting, they produce six to twelve eggs.
