General Description: Redheads (Aythya americana)
are sexually dimorphic pond ducks. Females are mottled brown and
generally indistinct. Males have bright colors: the head is red, the
neck and breast are black, and the sides and back are gray. The bill is
blue with a black tip. These ducks look similar to Canvasback Ducks,
but Redheads have a shorter bill, a darker back and sides, and the head is more round.
