Photos and videos of wild birds found in the Philippines. We travel all over the Philippines to document and take pictures of birds. Our goal is to make this site a resource of information and images about wild birds of the Philippines.
TUFTED DUCK, female
Saud, Pagudpud, Ilocos Norte
We were wondering if this might be a female Greater Scaup. Arne said: "The duck is rather tiny, brownish with rounded head. Greater Scaup is a bigger, more heavy birds, with some grayish colors, a slight flat top head not rounded and most females have considerable white at the basis of the beak. Among other features. Your bird in my opinion is a Tufted Duck."
