Ring-necked duck in Florida, USA

This video from Florida in the USA says about itself:

3 January 2017

Male Ring-Necked Duck takes off from small marsh. These are flighty little ducks and this is the first time I got this species on video. A striking diving duck with black crest and goldish eyes: Ring-necked Duck (Aythya collaris).

Ring-necked ducks tend to favor sheltered waters more than the other diving ducks do. They are often found in small flocks on small, tree-lined ponds and shallow Florida lakes where they dive for plants and seeds.

The video is both at normal speed and in slow motion.
