Australian Wood Duck

Australian Wood Duck (Image ID 37022)
CommentThe glimpse of the speculum on the male was a treat to see when this pair decided to retreat hurriedly. They were disturbed & suspicious when I appeared unexpectedly. They had hovered around our campsite, always close together, similar to almost other pairs of ducks.

These Wood Ducks have always appealed to me. Very moccha, or perhaps latte, verging on espresso.... Hence I submit these for consideration, because as well as Australian birds I am also interested in coffee. There, that is another reason I have chosen to add this photo.
