American Black Duck (female)

American Black Duck (female)

The Black Duck is primarily found in Eastern North America. Its size, body structure and flight characteristics closely resemble the Mallard.
The Black Duck is dusky brown with a paler head. The drake and hen look very similar except for their bills. The drake's bill is greenish yellow while the hen's bill is an olive green. Both sexes have a dark blue wing patch and a white under wing visible in flight. They both have a dark eye line.
