Canvasback-the “King of Ducks”

The regal canvasback, revered by many as the “King of Ducks”. One of the most well-known and studied of North American waterfowl, the canvasback gets its name from the white feathers on its body, which looked like canvas to early settlers along the Atlantic coasts. These pictures depict the canvasback’s “neck-stretch” courtship display, where the head and neck are vertically stretched upward, of which both sexes will perform during courtship.
