Ring-necked

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.

INTERESTING FACTS

  • A group of ducks has many collective nouns,
    including a “brace”, “flush”, “paddling”, “raft”, and
    “team” of ducks.
  • Because it never gathers in large flocks it has not been hunted extensively like some of its relatives. A fast flier, it undertakes longer migrations than most other diving ducks.
  • The Ring-necked Duck was first described in 1809 by Edward Donovan, an Anglo Irish writer and amateur zoologist.
  • This species might better be called the “Ring-billed Duck,” for its chestnut neck ring is usually seen only at close range, while the white ring on the bill can be a prominent field mark.
