This book is a fairly good book in identifying ducks (and geese), it explains voice, flock pattern, plumages (drake, eclipse drake, and hen), and a little bit on behavior, it also shows marsh birds so you can tell them apart, the only reason it got 4 instead of 5 stars is because, there isn't an incredible amount of info, and also some otf the words are jumbled togethe, I hope this helps!
