Hi All,

As a follow-up to my request last night someone queried the size of the mystery duck, so here is a further email with photos of the black duck & other, as well as a flight shot ....



This may help with size. They swam together everywhere, despite lots of other ducks around and they flew off together when no other ducks flew. I am sure they were together.

Hi All,

A visitor to Canberra has sent me these photos and would appreciate comments or information about the  photographed duck.

His message is also included:

Hi Julie,


I was in Canberra this week and saw an unusual duck in the company of a Pacific Black Duck. They swam together and flew off together when a fisherman cast his line at them despite seeing me trying to get a photo.


Can you put this image to Canberra Birds forum and ask if they have seen this duck? I presume it’s just a different colour. It was photographed by me yesterday (Wed) at Yarralumla Bay in front of the ADFA Boatshed.


Sorry about the quality of the images.

​Thanks for any feedback.
