Ecology and behavior of the Eurasian teal Anas crecca was studied in one of the northeast wetlands of Algeria. Knowing that its status, population dynamic and phenology has been few studied. This work aims to explain the diurnal behavior and the distribution pattern in one of marshes situeted in northeast of Algeria (marais de la Mekhada,). The wintering population of this duck reached the maximum effective in second decade of January 298 and 354 individual respectively, without significant difference in number between wintering seasons. The dominant activity in diurnal time budget of this water bird was the feeding (54% and 51% respectively) this result was probably due to availability of foods in the Mekhada march (mainly the abundance of Chironomidae). Overall, there was not marked seasonal change in the diurnal time budget of this species.
