They are capable of swimming underwater with their wings closed like other true diving ducks – normally, dabbling ducks dive with their wings open.The African Cape Teal (also known as Cape Wigeons) are small, attractive ducks that are a pale, mottled gray throughout, with distinctive pink bills and reddish eyes. Cape Teal are primarily a nocturnal species usually keeping to themselves in pairs or small flocks, and spend much of their time ashore. Teals are not very vocal, but males do emit a high-pitched whistle and the female responds with a nasal quack.
