13 Ducks (and Other Birds) With Red Beaks

Beaks are one of the distinguishing features for different duck breeds.

Here are some ducks, geese, and swans that all have one main thing in common: red beaks.

Mandarin Ducks

The mandarin duck, which is native to Japan and China, is perhaps the world’s most beautiful duck. It has quite an attractive plumage, and this makes it common in art and culture.

Muscovy Ducks

The warty-faced Muscovy ducks are one of the oldest domesticated fowls in the world. They are commonly found in south Texas, and some wild ones also live in Florida.


These birds are commonly around coastal regions (especially in winter), freshwater, and wetlands. Sometimes, they nest in tree holes, haystacks, and in old rabbit burrows.
