|The Duck with the upright tail|
The Ruddy Duck is a duck that you notice almost immediately on the water, and when you do, you can't help but watch him. The black and white head, combined with the bright blue bill, is like a beacon calling your attention. His upright posture and quick, alert movement give the impression of intelligence. His diminutive size, half that of a Mallard, makes him seem somehow friendly.
But don't let this fool you. The Ruddy Duck has a temper, just like Donald. Especially when he is competing for the charms of the female of his species, or defending his nest and young.
