The Pintail (Anas acuta) is widespread and breeds in the northern parts of Europe, Asia and North America. It is a typical migratory bird and is wintering south of its breeding distribution to the equator.

The pintail is a bird that belongs in open wetlands and is nesting on the ground, often at a distance from water.

The birds are foraging by diving for plants and expanding its food during breading season with small invertebrates. It is very social when not nesting, and form large flocks, together with other ducks.
