This medium-sized duck is more like a goose, with its shorter beak. Over the last few days, I’ve been seeing this lone female in our neighbour’s paddock. These ducks prefer to forage on land.
Their breeding season is just starting. Perhaps her mate is preparing a nesting hole in a nearby tree. I hope so.
Thanks for looking.

Isn’t she sweet. The fluffy feathers on her head make her look rather delicate.

Lovely. I expected her to fly away, but she didn’t.
