Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A small brown duck with a long bill and tail. In flight, look for a green stripe between two white stripes on the wing. Usually found in saltwater or brackish wetlands, especially on mudflats and in mangroves. Has the odd habit of dabbling on mudflats, usually in pairs. Sometimes found in shallow freshwater wetlands. Rare, endangered, and very local in western Madagascar. Similar in size to Red-billed Duck and Hottentot Teal, but Bernier’s Teal has a pale cap and a pale pink rather than red or blue bill.
