Visiting the Beaconsfield wetlands the other day there were quite a few ducks there, different ones that I was not familiar with. I’ll post some more tomorrow. These are Pacific Black Ducks. And yes, it was a gorgeous day. Great lighting and colour. These birds are mostly brown in colour so I have no idea why they’re called ‘black’. These ducks are quite common all around Australia and frequently found wherever there are bodies of water. We’ve even had a couple at the bottom of our driveway in very wet seasons.
