Abstract

The moults of the grey teal (Anas gibberifrons gracilis Buller) have been investigated in captivity and in a field population, with similar results. In north Queensland there was a postnatal, a postjuvenile and an immature moult in each young bird, and a postnuptial and a prenuptial moult in each adult bird in 1968, a year of heavy rainfall and subsequent flooding, and in 1969, a year of average rainfall.
