The marbled teal, or marbled duck (Marmaronetta angustirostris) scientific name is derived from the Greek word 'marmaros', meaning marbled, and 'netta', for a duck. Light brown with white spots or flecks, they have dark brown bills and large, dark patches around their eyes. Males and females look similar. The marbled Teal lives in southern Spain and North Africa and from Middle East to west China. It used to be classified as a dabbling duck but is now classed as a diving duck.
