INTERESTING FACTS

Tufted Ducks have increased their range and numbers in the past 100 years. An increased availability of open water due to gravel extraction and man-made lakes offer the ideal feeding habitat for them. They are one of the most common diving ducks. They are quite tame and have adapted well to man-made lakes, even in busy city parks. This Old World bird is a counterpart of the Ring-necked Duck of North America. A group of ducks has many collective nouns, including a "brace", "flush", "paddling", "raft", and "team" of ducks.
