New Zealand Teal
I'm not sure if this New Zealand Teal is the extremely rare Pateke (Brown Teal). I saw the bird at The Kiwi Housein Otorohanga, south of Auckland. My artist friend, Lindsay Scott, lives a few hours south of me in Tawharanui where she has the Pateke breeding on her property, so I'll ask the pro what she thinks!
