In the Book of Job we are instructed to, "Ask...the birds...and they will tell you." In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus said, "Look at the birds." So let's ask the birds, and look at the birds, and see what they have to say. May God bless you in your quest! Bill Bossman

Yes, It's Blue
Male Blue-winged Teal showing off its namesake wing
Blue-winged Teals have lovely blue wings. However, about the only time you ever get to see those blue wings is when the birds are in flight. I have never been able to get a good photo of Blue-winged Teals in flight. Yesterday, though, I found this male standing with its wing feathers spread just enough that a good area of blue was visible. What shade of blue would you call that? Teal, perhaps?
