Redheads

Linking up with Wild Bird Wednesday and Nature Notes

For this weeks wild bird I am sharing two ducks, both with redheads. ..The Redhead duck actually named Redhead and the Canvasback duck.


My mosaic above shows the Redhead duck on the left (far left) and the Canvasback duck on the right..


The Redhead ducks above are a diving duck, they have the red head, black breast, grayish sides, a bluish bill with a black tip and has yellow eyes..The Redhead photo above was taken at Loch Raven Resevoir in Baltimore County, Maryland.


A closer look at the Canvasback with their redheads, red eyes, bright white sides and a black breast. The Canvasback ducks photos were taken a few weeks ago at Cambridge Maryland..


A variety of ducks includes the Canvasback, American Wigeon and Scaup.

I hope you enjoyed my wild bird post.. Till next week's wild bird post.. I wish you happy Birding and have a wonderful week!

  9. I'm beginning to really look forward to the return of the ducks but everything here is frozen so I think they'll be staying in your neck of the woods for a while yet.

  29. Very informative, Eileen. These ducks don't come here often ... they pass through during migration and if I am in the right place at the right time, I might see one or two of them. Didn't realize there were two ducks with red heads ... now that I know, I will be looking to see which ones are visiting if only for a brief moment. Very nice post Eileen.
