I've never seen these in person - but the photos on here are stunning!

I've seem several different names for these - like wood duck; ring neck and Peking duck.

Do a search under tags for "ducks". It starts with the 1st (oldest) page - edit the the url and you can change from 1474 to any smaller number and look from there.
Remember, the forward button go older not newer (small lack of programming insite :-)

De Nederlandse naam is "Kyuifeend" Wijnie!
Het is een paartje, het vrouwrhe heeft niet zo'n mooie kuif
en ook niet de witte flanken zoals het mannetje.

Check the internet and found a bird just like this. It is called Lesser Scaup Duck.
