ARCHIVE 229 – TUFTED DUCK
May 4, 2016 13 Comments
This species is a common waterbird in the UK. Rather than moving in close for a portrait – which I was completely unable to do – this picture shows the bird in a typical habitat.
Many male ducks (drakes) have beautifully coloured plumage, while the far duller plumage of the females (ducks) reflects their need to remain concealed on the nest while incubating their eggs.
