About the Laysan Teal

Laysan teal are small ducks, covered in red-brown and dark brown feathers with a green-blue patch on the wing, a white eye ring and orange legs. They are a critically endangered species as they are only found on tiny islands and therefore in danger from hurricanes, droughts, lack of food and introduced plants and animals. Laysan teal are the most endangered animal at Drusillas – with less than 1000 birds living in the wild.

Laysan teal are found around lakes on Laysan Island and Midway Atoll in Hawaii.
