Capt. Lewis, March 10, 1806--the larger speceis are about the size of the teal and can flye a short distance which the small one scarcely ever atta[m]pts. they have a short tail. their colour is also an uniform brickredish brown, the beak is streight and pointed. the feet are of the same form of the other speceis [ed. the toes are not connected but webed like those discribed of the black duck] and the legs are remarkably thin and flat one edge being in front. the food of both speceis is fish, and the flesh unfit for uce.
