The following is a digest of Sightings Reported on Birdpedia for the period 
Monday, February 16, 2015 to Sunday, February 22, 2015:

Area: SA

Date: Sunday, February 22, 2015

Location: Laratinga Wetlands, Mount Barker

Australasian Shoveler (Anas rhynchotis) (30) About 10 of these birds were 
feeding in rotating groups (vortex feeding), in the same way that Pink-eared 
Ducks are known to do. The Shovelers were on the sewage settling ponds with 
Pink-eared Ducks. Have they learned this behaviour from watching the Pinkies or 
has this behaviour been observed before in Shovelers? Comments please.
