The red-billed Teal (Afrikaans name, Rooibekeend) is one of the prettiest of ducks, strangely the female is the one that quacks whilst the male whistles.

We Spotted these teals on a trip to Strandfontein Settling Pools this weekend. They are a common resident across most of our freshwater wetlands.

The red-billed teal breeds throughout the year.
