Northern Pintail / Ánade rabudo
Maximum size: 61 cm length – 90 cm wingspan
They live in dams, lagoons, marshes and wetlands. They can be seen
in small flocks on the banks, near reeds, crumps, bulrush, as they rest
or while they spruce up themselves.
They have an acute sexual dimorphism: males are more attractive while
females are more monochromatic. They both have black beaks. The main feature
in the males is the white stripe along their necks.
Although they only winter in the peninsula, some individuals can be
seen all along the year. They can be watched in the flooded marshes and
the inland lagoons.
