The Red-crested Pochard (Netta rufina) is a large diving duck. The species is fully migratory or locally dispersive. It breeds in southern Europe and Central Asia, wintering in the Indian Subcontinent (except Sri Lanka) and Africa. The adult male has a rounded rusty-orange head, with bright crimson bill and black breast. The flanks are white, the back brown, and the tail black. The female is mainly a pale brown, with a darker back and crown and a whitish face.This picture was taken at Purbasthali(Chupi) in Burdwan district of the state West Bengal, India, 120 kms north from Kolkata.Purbasthali lies on the banks of a large oxbow lake created by the river Ganges.
