Photo taken Slimbridge, UK May 2004

Breeding range: Falkland Islands, Chile and Argentina. Silver Teal are most common in areas which have an abundance of well established ponds, where small flocks of adults are often found. Their diet consists of a variety of aquatic invertebrates and pond weed.
Nests of grass are hidden in dense vegetation close to the water's edge, with 5 to 10 eggs being laid between October and December. Young leave the nest at an early age, and feed themselves under the protection of the parents. They only have one clutch.

Sexes are alike.
