Chenonetta jubata

Australian Wood Duck - A dabbling duck found throughout much of Australia. It will often be found around deeper lakes that may be unsuitable for other foraging waterbirds as it prefers to forage on land. Rarely seen in open water. It is classed as a game bird. They feed on grasses, grains, clover and other herbs, and occasionally, insects. Photographed at Baldwin Swamp Bundaberg Australia.
