Description: An uncommon sighting, the rusty coloured cinnamon teal's head, neck and breast are rusty-red, and its upper back is mottled brown. It has a green speculum and blue forewing, both of which are visible in flight or when swimming. The female is difficult to tell from other female teals, appearing almost identical to the female blue-winged teal. Normally silent, cinnamon teals have been recorded to fly as fast as 95 km/hr.
