At about 6:30 this morning I was interested to see a pair of Wood Ducks
_Chenonetta jubata_ perched on top of a brick chimney of a house in the
suburb of Bulimba (Brisbane).  I had not previously regarded Wood Ducks as
frequenting suburbs other than in parks.  They showed some apprehension at
my direct stare when I crossed the street for a better look, but did not
fly.  The female kept up a chattering sound, soft but clearly audible from
the footpath.
