Pacific Black Duckling

Anas superciliosa


A species duck found throughout Australia. A duck may have from 5 to 14 ducklings (or slightly more) depending on the species. Once hatched, they will follow their mother for about 4 weeks depending on weather and species.


Woodland areas that provide water.


These ducklings were adorable! Someone must have fed them before we came because they came running up to us and stayed around us for a while. Their mother was surprisingly friendly towards us as well.
