The gadwall is not flashy, but it is a handsome and elegant duck: At Palo Alto Baylands right now, the males in their winter plumage are a rich, warm brown with gray patterning, and distinctive saturated darkness under the tail. The female is lovely in her mottled brown. They are quiet and easily overlooked, but should not be.
