"Redhead Duck"
Limited Edition Giclee
- Pastel Painting of a Redhead Duck -

The Redhead Duck is a medium-sized diving duck. The adult male has a blue bill, a red head and neck, a black breast, yellow eyes and a grey back. The adult female has a brown head and body and a darker bluish bill with a black tip. Their breeding habitat is usually marshes and prairie potholes in western North America. Loss of nesting habitat has led to sharply declining populations. Females regularly lay eggs in the nests of other Redheads or other ducks, especially Canvasbacks. Redheads usually take new mates each year, starting to pair in late winter. Following the breeding season, males go through a molt which leaves them flightless for almost a month. Before this happens, they leave their mates and move to large bodies of water, usually flying further north.


I painted these Redhead Ducks as my entry into the 2010/2011 California Duck Stamp Contest. I took 3rd place Nation wide and was the only California artist to get into the top 3. The competition was tough and I'm so proud to get a ribbon at all!!! The number of colors in most Ducks or Geese are minimal compared to the Color Spectrum worn by the Redhead. This Waterfowl is why I Love Painting Wildlife Art with all of its Diversity.
