Pintail (Anas acuta)
The long neck and tail make them appear longer than mallards, but in body size and weight they are smaller.
Pintails have an average length of 26 inches and an average weight of 1 3/4 pounds.
These ducks use all four flyways, but are most plentiful in the west.
Typical Flock Pattern
- They are agile on land and often feed in grain fields.
- The drakes whistle and the hens have a coarse quack.
- They are extremely graceful and fast fliers, fond of zigzagging
from great heights before leveling off to land.
