Brief Summary

Read full entry
Tufted ducks are diving ducks: they can dive down to 50 meters. Like all diving ducks, their legs are situated far back for propulsion, but it means they are clumsy birds on land. However in water, tufted ducks are capable of staying in place even if the water is flowing rapidly. Their favorite prey is the zebra mussel, a freshwater species.
