The Ring-Necked Duck is a compact diving duck with a distinctive head shape—a sloping forehead and peaked rear crown. Their name alludes to a faint brown ring circling the base of the neck. The male Ring-Necked Duck is boldly marked in black, gray, and white. He has a distinctive white ring on his dark bill; a blackhead and back; a white line on the wings; a white breast; and yellow eyes. The female is brown with a delicate face pattern, pale cheeks, a white patch near her dark bill, and a white eye rings. Her legs and feet are blue-gray, and her eyes are brown. In captivity, Ring-Necked Ducks can live up to 20 years.
