The pintail or northern pintail (Anas acuta) is named for its elongated central tail feathers, which constitute one-fourth of the drake's body length. The scientific name comes from the Latin anas, meaning "duck", and acuta, which comes from the verb acuere, which means "sharpen" – so the species term, like the English name, refers to the pointed tail of the male. A duck with wide geographic distribution that breeds in the northern areas of Europe, Asia and North America, it has the nickname nomad of the skies due to its extensive migratory routes. Its preferred habitats include marshes, prairie ponds, tundra, and sometimes salt marshes.
