Ring NeckedRing Necked


If you are like me, I want to call this duck "Ring Billed" because of the obvious white ring on its bill.  Fooled me too!  The duck actually is named for the faint brown ring around its neck which only can be seen under the right lighting conditions.

This duck is interesting to watch as it is a skilled diver plunging beneath the surface of the lake to forage or invertebrates and seeds.

Itr also has a variety of vocalizations ranging from soft "quacks" to whistling sounds.
