Artist's Description

Taken at Sweetwater Wetlands, Tucson.Az Jan,2010

This (dabbling) duck breeds mostly in the interior West,nesting on well-vegetated, shallow freshwater lakes with muddy edges. They winter in freshwater and some brackish habitats in the southern and coastal U.S. and Mexico.

To eat, they sift mud and water with their bill, straining out tiny invertebrates and plant matter.

The Shoveler is the most territorial of all North American dabblers.

Voice Males sound like an air pump. A nasal thk or thk-thk. Females: a gabbling quack, often doubled, rougher, and deeper than other teal.

Appearance: Males; green head, white breast, and rusty sides. Females; similar to female teal, but with larger bill, more contrasting plumage.
