Small to medium sized wild duck. The male has the distinctive green head with a white collar. The female, often mistaken for a wood duck, has a blue patch near the back of the wing, but is otherwise brown and tan speckles.
These ducks mate for life, and the male is very territorial when other males approach his mate.
