The Garganey or Eurasian Garganey (Spatula querquedula, Linnaeus, 1758) is a bird of the Anatidae family.
Querquedula is an onomatopoeia referring to the characteristic vocal emissions of this species.
Its maximum dimensions are 40 cm, with a weight of up to 600 gr.
The garganey in its common dress can easily be mistaken for other species, such as the teal (Anas crecca), since the latter has a very similar build.
The garganey is widely distributed in the Palearctic. It winters in Africa, India and southeast Asia.
Garganeys lay their eggs near marshes and ponds. In winter they stay near lakes and in alluvial river territories.
The garganey nest consists of a mound that is lined with grass and feathers. It is built in thick vegetation near the water. The female lays 8 - 11 eggs.
Garganeys' food consists of insects, crabs, molluscs, seeds and aquatic plants. However, they prefer carnivorous food. This is taken either directly from the surface or just below, as these animals only rarely dive. They get their food by swimming around with their necks erect in a shoveler-like manner and hiding their heads partly in the water.
