Pink-eared Ducks tuck into Red Azolla

Pink-eared Ducks (Malacorhynchus membranaceus) popping up in many places lately, including first time listing in Tyto Wetlands.

They share a taste for Red Azolla with - among others - Pacific Black Duck (Anas superciliosa).

Chasing prey amid azolla and mud yesterday, Pacific (White-necked) Heron (Ardea pacifica).

And recently stepping out on Pink Lotus, Water Snowflake and azolla, White-browed Crake (Amaurornis cinerea).

Love that photo of the white-browed crake. That leafy setting creates a wonderful aura. The white markings seem to glow. Joyous
