Also known as: Brahiminy Duck, Ruddy Sheldrake

The Ruddy Shelduck is a large species of waterfowl with a native range across much of central Asia, with some isolated populations in Europe and northern Africa. The species has a conservation status of Least Concern; the Asian population is increasing while the European population is in decline.

Ruddy Shelducks are aptly named, having an overall orange-brown (ruddy) body plumage, with a somewhat lighter shade over the head. Black flight feathers and white coverts can be seen in flight and in part while the bird is resting or swimming.
