The displays of the American Green-winged Teal are briefly described. Most of the displays are performed during social courtship but a few occur when the members of a recently formed pair are alone. Most male displays are given with the body broadside to the female, but one involves facing toward her, another entails facing away. Two dispalys are associated with the hostility between males. Displays recorded for the European race occur also in the American race and no differences in behavior of the 2 forms have been detected.
