It's a nice looking duck but I think you need an Australian birder to ask what it is - I just know my North American birds!

Looks like a duck, walks like a duck, must be a duck. :lol:

Can't help you. It's not indigenous to my neck of the woods.

That is a (Tadorna Tadornoides) common name: Australian Shelduck(Shell Duck)
Isn't it amazing what you can do on a rainy night with some tunes, a glass of wine and the internet.
Lovely picture.

Yep, absolutely amazing. I was lazy. Perhaps the glass of wine would have put me in the mood to do the search...

Julie, I've noticed for months that this discussion forum software tends to be spotty in its ability to send notifications for all the threads you are watching. As a result, I've missed replies too. It makes people think you are ignoring them, but in reality you just don't have a clue...
