Brown Teal ringtone


The Brown Teal (Anas chlorotis) or New Zealand Teal, is a species of dabbling duck of the genus Anas. The Maori name for it is Pateke. It was considered to be conspecific with the flightless Auckland and Campbell Teals in Anas aucklandica; the name “Brown Teal” was applied to that entire taxon. The Brown Teal has since been split, recognizing that the insular A. aucklandica and A. nesiotis are excellent species. In international use, the name Brown Teal is still more ordinary than New Zealand Teal for this bird. brown_teal.mp3 (57 downloads)
