Green-winged Teal - Anas crecca

The green-winged teal is also a freshwater duck. It is smaller in size than most of the freshwater ducks. The drake has fancier feather coloring than the hen teal. The drake has a brown head and it also has green near the eye region on the sides. Its body is grayish in color, and it has green feathers on the middle back of its wings. The bottom side is white. The hen is brownish in color, and it has blue feathers on the middle back of its wings.

The green-winged teals are present here all year round. During the winter when the lakes are iced up, the teals can be found in the creeks, or the tide pools near the beach. During the summer, they are seen around the lakes.

The teals nest here on Atka. They either have nests around the lake area, or on small islets. Their nests are made of down and grass. They lay approximately ten eggs a year.
