Valentines Park's Pet Bahama Teal - By Samuel Bird

If you walk around the Fish Pond at Valentines Park, you are likely to see 3 of these ducks...

The male and female look the same.
They are Anas Bahamensis known as Bahama Pintail, Bahama Teal, White-Cheeked Teal or White Cheeked Pintail.

These very attractive ornamental ducks were pinioned and released into Valentines Park in mid 2010
