"Won't You Reconsider?" Baikal Teal Couple (from Waterbirds in Love)

#6..."Won't You Reconsider? (Baikal Teal Couple)

The Baikal teals are flirtatious, coquettish in nature.  Given to only infrequent of the flashy displays seen in other ducks, this drake confines himself to standing proudly on a rock turning his back to would-be girlfriend. Though he is from southern Korea, he is named for his breeding ground, Lake Baikal the world's oldest and deepest freshwater lake, which curves for nearly 400 miles through south-eastern Siberia, north of the Mongolian border.
