Red-crested pochard

Netta rufina


Portrayed here is the eclipse male (and fifth photo is for reference only, it was spotted on another occasion...); when its nuptial and spectacular colors become drab, mainly various shades of brown, and the bird loses its 'coiffed' orange-headed look... So, the eclipse male is mainly brown bird, but still keeping its red eye and red bill.


Lake Leman, Geneva - rather urban setting.
