|L to R: Male and Female Ring-necked Duck|
|What a beautiful bill!|
According to Ducks Unlimited, the "ring-necked" name comes from a faint brownish ring at the base of the neck that you can slightly distinguish on the first picture.
And this lonely Mallard seems like he's not really sure what to do and eventually swam off, perhaps to find another of his kind.

I wonder what we'll see next!
