Updated on December 7, 2010

Redhead Duck Description - Identification

Redhead ducks are members of the diving duck family. These colorful birds are among the most beautiful of all North American waterfowl.

Redhead ducks are similar in appearance and often flock together with their relatives, canvasbacks.

Redhead drakes are identified by their blue bill, red head and neck, black breast, yellow eyes and gray back. Female redheads have a brown head and body and a bluish bill tipped with black.

Redhead drakes make a "meow" sound or a typical quack. Female redheads squawk, similar to mallards of the same sex.

Admired for their brilliant coloration, redheads are extremely popular in waterfowl art. Redhead ducks have appeared 4 times on Federal Migratory Bird Hunting and Conservation stamps (duck stamps).
