INTERESTING FACTS

The Cinnamon Teal is the only duck with separate breeding populations in North America and South America. The female often places her nest below matted, dead stems of vegetation so it is completely concealed on all sides and from above. She approaches the nest through tunnels in the vegetation. A group of cinnamon teal are collectively known as a "seasoning" of teal.
