Ringneck





Length--17 in.

Weight--2½ lbs.



Similar in appearance to scaups, but more often found in fresh marshes

and wooded ponds. In flight, the dark wings are different from the

white-edged wings of scaup.



Faint brown ring on drake's neck never shows in the field; light bands

at tip and base of bill are conspicuous.



Fly as small flocks in open formation; often land without circling.

Drakes purr; hens are usually silent.
