Tufted Ducks looking all spruced up for Spring

I popped into Lochend Park today on the way to a writing class. The tufted ducks (or should that be the tufted drakes?) look at their handsome best at this time of year. Not only do they have a lovely tuft on their heads but their heads also glow purple in the right light.

The females, like most female ducks are in contrast camouflaged brown, after all they need to blend in with the background when they're sitting on a nest!

In body shape and position in the water, tufties remind me more than all other quackers of bath-time rubber ducks

Hello, cute shots of the duck. The Tufted Duck is one I have been looking for, a while now.

Happy Thursday, enjoy your day and the weekend ahead!
