This species of duck is almost the whole year at our birdringingstation 'Schlammwiss'. It's easy to see them in winter, when they are in the middle of the lake. And the males are very colourful in winter.

In summer males and females are looking similar! They change all the feather and can't fly for some days.. During this time they hide in the reeds
