Laysan Duck Anas laysanensis

 

The Laysan Duck (Anas laysanensis), also known as the Laysan Teal because of its small size, is an endangered dabbling duck endemic to the Hawaiian Islands. Fossil evidence reveals that Laysan Ducks once lived across the entire archipelago, but today survive only on three small, isolated islands.

The Laysan Teal is not endangered and has been trans located to another Island in the Leeward Islands where it thrives. It is also common in captivity. The reason it is listed endangered is the restricted population which can only support so many birds.
