Red-crested Pochard

(engl: Red-crested Pochard)

Unique colour choice 

The Red-crested Pochard is the only diving duck with a red beak and red feet. Male animals can be recognised by their red head. 

An egg seldom comes alone? 

Females often lay their eggs in a common nest. Sometimes the nest is so overcrowded that the eggs cannot be incubated.
