Teal is a color that is obtained by mixing blue and green in equal parts. The color gets its name from the fact that it surrounds the eyes of the common teal, a member of the duck family. The complementary color of teal is coral pink.Now,that is a very pleasant combination of colors!! The Common Teal (bird) is the smallest dabbling duck at 34-38 cm length with a 53-59 cm wingspan.This dabbling duck is strongly migratory and winters south to Africa and south Asia. It highly gregarious outside of the breeding season and will form large flocks.It is distinguished from drake Green-winged Teal by a horizontal white scapular stripe, no vertical white bar on side of breast, and thin buff lines on its head.
