I'm not the best at duck identification, and understand the red head, and canvas back look very similar. What is different about them?

The Redhead has a rusty red head and neck. The Cancasback has the same but it extends all the way down the back.

Dennis, here are pictures of Redheads and Canvasbacks. Hope this helps you out. Go to www.Ducks. org. That is Duck Unlimited. Click on Waterfowl ID and it will show all the ducks.
