Laratinga Wetlands

Australian Shoveler Ducks

Fortunately at the moment our wetlands are still open to the public and we are allowed to exercise in the open air - this one I took at Laratinga last Friday. The Australian Shoveler Duck prefer wetlands with areas of open water fringed by abundant aquatic vegetation, where they feed in small groups by dabbling in the mud or at the water?s surface to filter small aquatic invertebrates from the water, using small grooves, on the sides of the birds? heavy, square-cut, shovel-tipped bills.
