Ring-necked Ducks

This duck breeds mostly in the boreal forest belt, where it nests near freshwater ponds in open country and forest. It winters in diverse freshwater situations, including marshes, lakes, and borrow pits.

In flight, both sexes show a weak gray wing stripe (unlike Scaup ot Tufted Duck). The maroon around the males neck can only be seen in optimal conditions.

VOICE Male;in display a rapid series of syncopated piping, sounding like Morse code. Female’ a rapid series of strident, modulated quacks.

My goal is to get my name out there among the vast ocean of Natural photographers. To be known for my skill with a Point & Shoot~

My images are not photo shopped. They have only been adjusted with basic sharpening, contrasting & saturation techniques. I believe that in order to appreciate Nature, you have to capture it as it is, naturally.

    Wow, nice capture Kimberly, they never come this close around here

  • Well they learned very fast that this lake people feed ducks and geese! So if you have feed or just squat (like I did) they think you have food. I followed a young couple and took full advantage for the cloudy day. Many thanks Michael!

    They are super looking I think I saw some at Sylvan Heights Waterfowl park last year.

  • They are really neat when the sun is shinning on them and catches the reflection! Thank you my friend!

    Great duck shots. I had some here last year and they would not come close. I had to use a Blind. Great work on all your Photos

  • There were a few that learned that ducks at this pond get fed! So they were eager until they saw I had no food..lol! Thank you Robert for all your support!
