Green-headed duck

See Mexican Duck, Anas and below

The Green-headed duck is classified as Least Concern. Does not qualify for a more at risk category. Widespread and abundant taxa are included in this category.

The green-headed duck pointed one wing at the overgrown pile of rotting frames. “You should open that door, Fred,” he quacked. “That’s silly. Why would I want to do that?” “Someone once wrote that the doors we open and close each day decide the lives we live,” he replied. There’s no point in arguing with a duck so I opened the door. More

a green-headed duck that flew as soon as the arrow hit the water. Two more problems about duck hunting with a bow: the ducks never stop swimming and the shots are usually about 30 to 40 yards. Also, when one duck flies, they all fly. So I've learned over the years that if I try to get too close, one will spook and they will all be gone. More

with the green-headed duck in the guide labeled "mallard." The consistency of the green-head mallard relationship is communicated through feedback, and in the absence of feedback will remain unknown to John. Through repeated pairings of the green-head mallard label, a production rule forms: IF green head THEN mallard. Now consider a situation in which ducks with green heads are sometimes mallards, but at other times are woodducks or green-winged teals. More

We do not have mallards, a showy, green-headed duck, in this area. Domesticated mallards are sometimes present. Neither are there black mallards here. Next on the arrival schedule are several members of the teal family — blue-winged and green-winged teal. There are usually a few cinnamon teal also. The blue-winged are distinguished by a white, up and down crescent behind their bills. Much harder to see is the vertical white mark on the body of the green-winged teal. Cinnamon teal are, of course, cinnamon colored. More
