Cinnamon teal (Anas cyanoptera) A striking species of teal found mainly in Western North America. This individual was photographed at Robert Lake in Kelowna, which is a salt lake known for hosting a small annual breeding population of American avocets, one of the worlds most northernly colonies. Unfortunately last years breeding season ended abruptly for the avocets when the only pair present had their eggs crushed under a massive fill of dirt. It is strange to me that the city of Kelowna did not put a buffer zone around this important site, not only to prevent flooding on private land, but also to minimize agricultural run off from entering the lake. #cityofkelowna #robertlakeregionalpark #cinnamonteal #bird #birding #Kelowna #okanagan #beautifulbritishcolumbia #teal #kelownaisbeautiful #tbh_ig #birdwatching #sassy_birds #birdextremefeatures #bns_birds #ig_birdfreaks #splendid_nature #thetweetsuites #birds_4you #greatnaturephotos #total_birds #elite_birds #perfect_birds #kelownanow #audubontakeover #kings_birds #your_best_birds #kelownaviews #thompsonokanagan #your_bird_capture
