The white-edged side and flank feathers form a striking border between sides and back. Tail is black with white undertail coverts.
Ruddy Duck: This small, bright red-brown duck has a black cap extending below the eyes onto the nape, heavy blue bill and black tail. Some males have an all black head lacking white cheek patches.
