The wings look like you pulled them away from the body too much. On fast flying ducks like teal, by keeping them "tighter" it gives them the natural "hauling butt" look. On the secondaries you can either card them or tape them to get a nice smooooooth appearance without the spaces between feathers. Your feet don't seem to be injected (Masters Blend) to keep them PLUMP. Other than that the neck skin just needed to be pulled forward toward the head for a better junction. Yes, teal have slender necks but if you look at most reference they tend to tuck them just enough to give a thicker appearance in flight. The latest DU mag has a few flock pic's of them to see what I am talking about.
Keep up the good work.
P.S. Your base looks like you just went out to the yard and cut down a tree
