Grebes, Wildfowl







Australasian Grebe, differentiated from Little by the different distribution of chestnut on the neck. Occurs as far north as Java.



Seems to have a different wing pattern too.



Female Australasian Shoveler.



Eclipse male Chestnut Teal, with a deceptively Northern Pintail-like silhouette!



Blue-billed Duck and Hoary-headed Grebe.





Pacific Black Duck



Cape Barren Goose



Black Swan
