Birds - Gadwall
Class:Aves Order:Anseriformes Family:Anatidae Genus:Anas


Gadwall, Anas strepera. Though the females are colored similarly to Mallards, the male Gadwall isn't flashy, but he is beautiful. Their heads are large with steep foreheads. From the side you can see they have a white spot nestled in the brown feathers of the wings, near the black feathers of the tail. They have been known to steal vood from aerial divers like the tern. Gadwall pictures by Nick Varvel and John McConnell.

All species pages are currently being updated with more useful descriptions and information.
