Redhead Ducks

Updated on November 28, 2014


Redheads are among the most beautiful of all North American ducks.

These striking birds are members of the diving duck family.

Redheads are similar in appearance to canvasbacks, and the two species often flock together.

Redhead Duck Identification

Redhead ducks are fairly easy to identify. Drakes have a blue bill, red head and neck, black breast, yellow eyes and a grey back. Adult females have a brown head and body and a darker bluish bill with a black tip.

Redhead drakes sometimes make a "meow" sound or utter a more typical quack. Hens have a loud squawk, higher than a hen mallard's. Redheads are sometimes confused with canvasbacks, another red-headed diving duck.

Redhead Duck Artwork

Redheads are popular among waterfowl art enthusiasts, primarily due to the drake's pattern of bright, contrasting colors. Redhead duck artwork includes paintings, prints, photographs, decoys, carvings, sculpture and other works of art.
