The Red Head is a diving duck and is similar in appearance to the Canvasback and Common Pochard, however, they can be identified by their Yellow eye rather than the Red eyes of the latter.
The female Red Heads either lay eggs in their own nest and/or lays them in another femaleís nest or they donít lay eggs at all during the season.
