Canard à sourcil

 Anas superciliosa
Anseriformes - Anatidae

 Canard de surface commun en Australie de plumage assez sombre et les côtés de la tête barrés de bandes sombres et claires qui lui ont valu son nom français. Peu farouche, on le trouve facilement en compagnie du Canard colvert et autre anatidés.

 Pacific black duck
A common species in Australia with dark plumage and the head barred with light and dark stripes. This sociable species is easily found in the company of other ducks, mainly mallards.



Sur un point d'eau recouvert des jolis Nénuphars frisés (Nymphoides indica):

The dam was covered with the very pretty Water Snowflakes:

  1. I love your scenes . . . with those very pretty lilies . . . and ducks "with eyebrows."
    You introduce me to so many new sights.
    The world is amazing.

  2. That is a lovely duck. It looks as though it is related to the mallard. I love seeing fauna and flora from Australia, it is all so different from that seen in Europe.

  7. I remember this duck well from Australia. If found in a park it was very confiding and readily took food from humans; in the wild, however, it was very wary. Not unlike Mallards, huh?
