Some species, such as Bufflehead (Bucephala albeola), Common Goldeneye (Bucephala clangula), Lesser Scaup (Athya affinis), and Ruddy Duck (Oxyura jamaicensis) have diets that are almost exclusively macroinvertebrates throughout their entire lives (Hoppe and others 1986; Bendell and McNicol 1995; Thompson and Ankney 2002), while others like American Widgeon (Anas americana) consume mostly vegetation during adulthood (Wishart 1983; Knapton and Pauls 1994).
