The Ruddy Shelduck, Tadorna ferruginea, is a member of the duck, goose and swan family Anatidae. It is in the shelduck subfamily Tadorninae. In India it is known as the Brahminy Duck.

There are very small resident populations of this species in north west Africa and Ethiopia, but the main breeding area of this species is from south east Europe across central Asia to southeast China. These birds are mostly migratory, wintering in southern Asia.


Male & Female at Keoladeo National Park, Bharatpur, Rajasthan, India.Although becoming quite rare in southeast Europe and southern Spain, the Ruddy Shelduck is still common across much of its Asian range. It may be this population which gives rise to vagrants as far west as Iceland and Great Britain. However, since the European population is declining, it is likely that most occurrences in western Europe in recent decades are escapes or feral birds. Although this bird is observed in the wild from time to time in eastern North America, no evidence of a genuine vagrant has been found.

This is a bird of open country, and it will breed on cliffs,in burrows, tree holes or crevices distant from water, laying 6-16 creamy-white eggs, incubated for 30 days. The Ruddy Shelduck is usually found in pairs or small groups and rarely forms large flocks. However, moulting and wintering gatherings on chosen lakes or slow rivers can be very large.


Ruddy Shelduck Tadorna ferruginea at Slimbridge Wildfowl and Wetlands Centre, Gloucestershire, England.The Ruddy Shelduck is a distinctive species, 58–70 cm long with a 110–135 cm wingspan. It has orange-brown body plumage and a paler head. The wings are white with black flight feathers. It swims well, and in flight looks heavy, more like a goose than a duck. The sexes of this striking species are similar, but the male has a black ring at the bottom of the neck in the breeding season summer, and the female often has a white face patch. The call are is a loud wild honking.

In captivity this species is generally aggressive and antisocial and is best housed in pairs unless in a very large area. Then it may mix with other species, although it will still be feisty at breeding time.

The genus name Tadorna comes from Celtic roots and means "pied waterfowl", essentially the same as the English "shelduck".

In Tibet and Mongolia, Ruddy Shelduck is considered sacred by the Buddhists. It is also a sacred animal in Slavic mythology.[citation needed]

In Hindi and Urdu (India/Pakistan) it is called Surkhab.

The Ruddy Shelduck is one of the species to which the Agreement on the Conservation of African-Eurasian Migratory Waterbirds (AEWA) applies.

Merhaba Ömer Bey

Bu bizim angıt ya da angut dediğimiz ördek sanırım. Ben hep Türkçede neden bu adın verildiğini merak etmişimdir. Bilirsiniz aklı pek yetkin olmayan insanlara angut derler, acaba bu ördekler gerçekten biraz saf mı? Neden angut demişler diye düşünmüşümdür hep.

Fotoğraf olarak muhteşem görünüyor. Çok etikeleyici, küçük hali bile dikkat çekici. Zaten sayfayı açar açmaz gözüme ilişti ve kimin yüklediğine bakmadan tıkladım. Gördüm ki dostumuz yüklemiş buna daha çok emmnun oldum. Sevgli Bayram'ın da çok seveceğine eminim. Çok başarılı bir iş kotarmışsınız. Tebrik ederim. Selam ve sevgiler. İyi bir hafta dileklerimle.

Hi Omer,

A wonderful dedication to Bayram. I'm sure he loved it although I cannot translate what he wrote. A marvelous action shot of this Ruddy Shelduck who seems to be having a fine time spreading his wings and splashing in the water. The face and wings are beautiful - marvelous colors and details. I love the effect of the water!

Merhaba Ömer dostum,
This is a great well timed capture of a Ruddy Shelduck landing on the water. The timing and high shutterspeed have produced a fine effect of the water splash and fine sharpness of the shellduck.
A fine foto and nice tribute to our friend Bayram.
Thanks and best wishes,

Impresionante nitidez Omer y una luz de mucha viveza y eficacia. Buena elección del 1/1500.

Dear Omer!

Many thanks for this superb picture and the well elaborated notes. I like the picture very much because of its dynamism created by the moving bird and water. This changes from the usual portraits we see on TN. Moreover, the lighting is superb and creates fine and natural colours.

Kind regards
