The Redheads

Birds, that is. Redhead Ducks. I had never seen one before, but there are several here now. So impressive with the big wide bill and brilliant copper heads! Can you tell which is the Redhead?



Another feature is their brilliant yellow eyes! They glow like lamps.

I have never seen nor even heard of a red headed duck. amazing.. love that copper head, looks like my grandmother, daddy's mother had copper colored hair almost the same shade as these ducks.

Such cute ducks! I think I’ve seen ducks with red head somewhere online, but never seen or noticed yellow eyes! They look stunning!
