Immature Redhead Ducks are some what similar in to the adult females. ”
During breeding season this they make their nest in marshes and prairie potholes in the Northern Prairie Regions. They prefer non foisted marsh's.
They do not make their own nests.
As many as 80% of North American Redheads migrate to Mexico and Texas where they reside during winter months.
The "Redhead" Ducks are slowly on the declining side, because of their nesting habitat are disappearing.
As you can see DesertDale found an area near to go birding. He got a few "great" shots of his friends. Hope you all have the same pleasure ready about them, that he had taking the photos.
