#39 Blue-winged Teal
Small dabbling ducks, Blue-winged Teals migrate relatively late in spring and early in fall, and most spend winters outside the United States, some as far as South America. They nest on the ground near ponds and marshes, and young Blue-wings are forced to mature quickly: they leave the nest within 24 hours after hatching.
This patch highlights the efforts of Delta Wind Birds, a nonprofit organization that works to create migratory wetland habitat for Blue-winged Teals and other birds in the Mississippi Delta.
