Green-winged Teal (American)

I enjoy taking images in the rain, it’s quiet and there are very few people. This morning I came across this male Green-winged Teal ( Anas crecca ). It has a beautiful dark rufous and iridescent green coloured head. The American population differs from the Eurasian by having a distinct white bar, which you can see in the photo. It’s the smallest North American dabbling duck.
