Ring Neck Duck III
Lake Junaluska in the mountains of North Carolina becomes home for a respite for the Ring-neck duck before migrating
"Although it mixes freely with other diving ducks on large lakes in winter, the Ring-neck is also found on small, tree-lined ponds, and associating with dabbling ducks on shallow waters. A strong and fast flier, it is able to take flight by springing up directly from the water, without the laborious take-off run of most diving ducks. Despite the name, the ring on its neck is almost never visible."
You can barely see it rust ring around its neck ant the base.
