PINTAIL


PINTAIL (Anas acuta). This elegant variety of the duck tribe is rather larger than the widgeon, but more slender in form, and its neck longer. The bill is black in the middle, blue on the sides ; the head is ferruginous, the hinder part tinged with purple; a white line, bounded by black, commences from beneath the ears, which runs some way down the neck: the hind part of the neck, the back, and sides, are neatly marked with white and dusky lines ; the fore part of the neck and belly white ; the scapulars striped with black and white; the coverts of the wings ash coloured; the lowest tipped with dull orange : the middle quill feathers barred with green, black, and white; the exterior feathers of the tail ash-coloured; the two middle black, and three inches longer than the others; the feet of a lead colour. The female is of a light brown, spotted with black. The pintail is seldom seen in England, except during the severity of winter. Its flesh is considered as more delicate in flavour than most otherwild fowl. It weighs about a pound and half.
