GREY TEAL, NYLETA WETLANDS, HASTIES SWAMP NATIONAL PARK, QUEENSLAND, AUSTRALIA

   We can ID this duck as a Australian Grey Teal by its almost all grey-brown plumage, contrast between dark crown and much paler face and throat (this differentiates it from the female Chestnut Teal) and feathers edged in buff,  except at the rump.
   The Grey Teal is a new species to our Photographic Life List, which now stands at 703.
