CAPE TEAL, STRANDFONTEIN SEWER WORKS, CAPE TOWN, SOUTH AFRICA
The ducks on the left and upper right with the pinkish bills are Cape Teals. The duck in the upper middle of the photo with a yellow eye is Cape Shoveler. The other two ducks we can't ID.
We can ID the Cape Teal by its red eye, pinkish bill with a black base and dark tip, overall pale head and mottled dark brown upperparts.
The Cape Teal is a new species to our Photographic Life List, which now stands at 496.
