RUDDY DUCK

Ruddy ducks feed on aquatic plants and invertebrates.  Ruddy duck females not only lay large eggs, they lay large numbers of them (up to 17).  Some females attempt to lay eggs in the nests of other birds.  Sometimes many females will lay an egg in a large nest, referred to as a dump nest, that no female cares for.
