Green-Winged Teal

Anas carolinensis

The Green-Winged Teal is not known to breed south of Oregon, Idaho, and Wyoming in the western USA. Some authorities lumped the Green-Winged Teal and the Common Teal (Anas crecca), but most seem to agree that based on behaviour and DNA evidence, this bird deserves its own species status.
