8 Dec Delta Waterfowl's Dr. Frank Rohwer talks about Redheads in this duck species profile.
Description:Most redheads winter along the Gulf of Mexico offshore Louisiana, Florida and Mexico however eastern populations will winter in South Carolina. Eventually, the male initiates copulation by alternating bill dipping and preening dorsally towards the female, an action in which the female might return to the male. They are built with thick and strong plant material in emergent vegetation, such as hard stem bulrush , cattails and sedges , over or near standing water. In central North America, migrants arrive as soon as temperatures open wetlands and lakes, which can range from late February Nebraska to early May Alberta, Manitoba and Iowa. Males begin this process through neck-kinking and head throwing displays while emitting a cat-like call.
