The gadwall may be North America's most inconspicuous dabbling duck. Drakes have mainly gray and brown body plumage, a solid black rump, and a white belly. Their wings are marked with a black and white speculum and maroon shoulder patch. Hens are even more nondescript, having dull brown body plumage and a white belly.
