Red-billed Teal - Grooming Beauty A Red-billed Teal male grooms his feathers while on a calm pool.  I will add another photo whereby one can identify the sex (a single golden feather under the wing).  Needless to say, this water bird is rather well adapted to its surroundings color wise.  <br />

The Red-billed Teal, ''Anas erythrorhyncha'', is a dabbling duck which is an abundant resident breeder in southern and eastern Africa typically south of 10° S. This duck is not migratory, but will fly great distances to find suitable waters. It is highly gregarious outside the breeding season and forms large flocks.
