Netta rufina (Red-crested Pochard)

Wikipedia Abstract

The red-crested pochard (Netta rufina) is a large diving duck. The scientific name is derived from Greek Netta "duck", and Latin rufina, "golden-red" (from rufus, "ruddy"). Its breeding habitat is lowland marshes and lakes in southern Europe and Central Asia, wintering in the Indian Subcontinent and Africa. It is somewhat migratory, and northern birds winter further south into north Africa. A wheezing veht call can be given by the male. Series of hoarse vrah-vrah-vrah calls can also be heard from females.
