Australian Wood Duck


Taxonomists aren't quite sure what to make of the Australian Wood Duck Chenonetta jubata. Maybe it's a goose, maybe it's a duck. Maybe it's a shelduck, maybe it's a teal. Its closest relative is an extinct flightless New Zealand goose like duck.

They are found just about everywhere, grazing on lush damp grass and are a species that thrives in agricultural surroundings.
