What’s In A Name

Common to many areas of North America, the green-winged teal is a small duck identified by the bright green swath on its head and the underside of its wings. The smallest of all North American ducks, green-winged teal are known to be quick, active and very agile birds, often moving extremely fast in twist-like flocks.

Naming a company isn’t something to be taken lightly, and as avid outdoorsmen, Teal’s leadership team identified with this nimble bird. Similar to the green-winged teal, Teal Natural Resources, while small, uses its size to its advantage, being a quick first-mover, a flexible and adaptable player in an ever-changing energy market.
