Hi all, 
Great views today of the male Paradise Shelduck at Bushells Lagoon (Western 
Sydney) in the area across the field to the right of the shed....
I was there at 1.00pm and parked next to the shed.
I then walked the length of the causeway (to end) and didn't see the bird.
Upon returning to the shed (which was on my left) I walked behind the shed and 
saw the Paradise Shelduck hanging out with a couple of Black Swans.
It was actually calling softly for the entire time I was there observing (25 
mins) which I assume was an alarm.
Is this bird confirmed as being wild and not from a private collection (illegal 
CheersCharles Hunter
