Green-winged Teal

 Female Green-winged Teal (Anas carolinensis)

Green-winged teals are small ducks that like shallow ponds and marshes. A few breed in a marsh near where I live. They are among the last ducks to migrate south in the fall and the first to return in the spring. Some may still be here in December.


They are the smallest North American dabbling ducks. This time of year they feast on the seeds of grasses and sedges.

Window Display

 Winery window display

Friends of ours own and operate a small winery and in the entranceway there's a charming window and shelf with old stuff I wish I owned. I'd love to have those wooden birds. I'm sure I could find a place for them...okay, pretty sure.

The window above the three birds has one more bird

In celebration of the old and wonderful "stuff", I  am connecting to Rubbish Tuesday HERE.
