The Green-winged Teal is among the most numerous and widespread of all northern ducks. They are essentially gregarious and are best distinguished by their small size. It can be distinguished by the males incomplete yellow face lines, a black lateral stripe along the wing edge, and the vertical white line that separates the flank and breast.
Master Carver, Phil Galatas features preening and action poses. He grew up on the wildlife rich bayous of Louisiana and enjoyed countless hours observing and studying waterfowl on the mashlands. He entered his first carving competition, the Gulf South Championship in 1977 earning a first place blue ribbon on the professional division. Phil received "Best in World" awards at the 1989, 1990, and 2002 Ward World Championships and was invited to the 2002 Sculptor International show in Atlanta. He now serves as a judge at the Ward World Championships. Each of our duck, loon and waterfowl decoys are world class. The traditional poses of the decoys are handcast, handpainted and have realistic accents such as feathering.
