Grey Teal

Grey Teal

I had just driven out of the front gate this morning on my way to Adelaide when I had to brake suddenly. Just around the first corner I came across two ducks – Grey Teal to be exact.

They were casually strolling across the road – right in my path – hence the need to brake. As I approached they decided to beat a hasty retreat, so they took flight over the fence and into the nearby dam.

Sorry about the photo above – it’s not the best I’ve shown here on this blog. Searching through my photo collection I realise that I do not have many photos of this species – and those I have are not the greatest in quality. It’s only one of our most common ducks, so there is no excuse.

I need to get out more.

    Nice one! I have no photos at all of Grey Teal.

    Hi there Alan – isn’t it amazing how we sometimes ignore the common species? I have some great shots of some of the less than common birds, yet few or no shots at all of the garden variety types.
