The Ruddy Duck is a stiff-tailed duck that lives throughout North America. It nests in dense marsh vegetation near water. They dive and swim underwater to look for seeds and roots of aquatic plants, aquatic insects and crustaceans.
As a result of escapes from wildfowl collections they are now also established in Great Britain from where they have spread widely into Europe.
