Ringed Teal Duck (male)
Judy Royal Glenn Photography
I learned of “Little Plateada” while photographing in El Paso, Texas. A lady named Jayne introduced me to him and named him.
Yes, these birds are from South America, but someone probably bought him and abandoned him at this lake. He’s a long way from home and sadly, does not have a mate. He’s forced to live a life of solitude.
