A large diving duck, the Canvasback breeds in prarie potholes and winters on ocean bays. Its sloping profile distinguishes it from other ducks.
The species name of the Canvasback, Aythya valisineria, comes from Vallisneria americana, or wild celery, whose winter buds and rhizomes are its preferred food during the nonbreeding period.

A great close-up shot of this pretty Canvasback Duck. Love the contrasting red, black and white plumage accented by it's bright red eye. Captured in an attractive side pose which allows us to get a wonderful view of it's features and beautiful colors. Well done!!
