Deutsch: Schlichtkleid. Nach der Brut wechseln Stockenten-Erpel ihr Gefieder und erhalten ihr Schlichtkleid, das an das Gefieder der weiblichen Stockenten erinnert. Von den Weibchen unterscheiden sich die Erpel dadurch, daß sie einen gelben Schnabel haben, während die Weibchen einen braunen Schnabel haben.
