The Falcated Duck (Anas falcata), or Falcated Tea'l' is a species of duck.

This species is a rare vagrant to British shores, originally from eastern Asia. Though some records are thought to be genuine vagrants, some maybe be escapes as they are often collected. The males have a grey body with a purple and green head and white throat. Females are similar to female pintails.
