Pacific Black Duck

Anas superciliosa


A common duck found in Australia and New Zealand.


Woodland areas with water. Found in much of Indonesia, New Guinea, Australia, New Zealand, and many islands in the southwestern Pacific.


This duck was accompanied by another duck. I fed them both bread. The duck in the picture ate from my hand but walked away shortly after while the other kept its distance at all times. (・´з`・)
