The Gadwall (Scientific Name - Anas strepera) is a dabbling (puddling) duck found across North America, although more prevalent in the West. They range from Alaska down into Mexico and Central America. It is slightly smaller than the more common Mallard and the females of the species look similar. The male has a round brown head, and a grey brown and black body with finely patterned flanks and breast. They have a black patch on the upper tail.
