The wintering ducks in Falmouth are always a wonder to behold! The Canvasback duck is a large, elegant, long-billed diving duck. This male has a rich chestnut head and neck with a bright red eye. It also has a black breast and canvas-white back and sides. The Canvasback is a very fast flying duck that is able to reach speeds of over 60 MPH! This Canvasback was recently observed in Perch Pond on Teaticket Path in East Falmouth.
