Bird Pic Of The Week

Ring-necked Duck

(Aythya collaris)

Where: Chesterfield County, VA • Dutch Gap Conservation Area

Notes: Subtle alterations in light direction and intensity can have a huge impact on subjects with high contrast plumage, such as this adult male Ring-necked Duck. The subtle undersides with soft shades from gray to white and the upper coverage with deep black to iridescent purple make this a difficult subject to capture. There is a fine line between over exposure of the lighter areas and under exposure of the dark with this bird. The soft morning and evening light provides the best source for this. Besides, most wildlife is more active at these times as well. The "Ring-neck" is one of the most common diving duck species found on small ponds during migration. It is easily identified by its bold white bill stripe and the female is dull brown with an eye ring.
