Redhead Duck

This picture was taken near Rockport Texas on our way home last spring (6 April 2006). The Redhead is a diving duck and eats mainly vegetation but will eat the odd small animal such as frogs and salamanders. They're a fairly small duck weighing 2-2 1/2 pounds and they've been known to lay their eggs in other birds nests, especially Mallards.
