    wood duck and mandarin duck


  1. Aix

    Aix is a genus that contains two species of ducks: the Wood Duck, and the Mandarin Duck. The genus belongs to the family Anatidae in the waterfowl order Anseriformes. They were formerly placed in the "perching ducks", a paraphyletic group somewhat intermediate between shelducks and dabbling ducks, and it is not quite clear whether they should be placed in the Anatinae or Tadorninae subfamily. The two species are generally considered to be very attractive, particularly the multi-coloured drakes. Wood Ducks are a North American species, occurring mainly in the eastern half of the United States, and from southern Canada to northern Mexico. Mandarin Ducks are an Asian species occurring mainly in Japan and China, but there is an important feral population in the United Kingdom. Both species migrate from the northern parts of their respective ranges to winter in the south of the range. They inhabit quiet wooded streams and ponds. The genus shows marked sexual dimorphism, with the females being smaller and less colorful. The Wood Duck has a mass of 500–700 grams. It is 41–49 centimeters in length, and has a wingspan of 73–75 cm. Males have red eyes and iridescent plumage. Both sexes have crested heads.
