The Blue-winged Teal (Anas discors
) is a small dabbling duck. It is not a teal in the strict sense, and its color pattern is strikingly reminiscent of the Australasian Shoveler. DNA analysis of this species has revealed it's genetic make up to be almost identical to that of the Cinnamon teal. Their breeding habitat is marshes and ponds throughout north and central North America.
