Hi All,
I've just seen Blue billed Ducks for the first time - at the Jerramoberra 
settlement ponds beside Dairy Road in Fyshwick ACT.  There were three, amongst 
a group of Hardheads.  If only I had a 1000mm lens and a tripod!

>From a distance they look very similar to the Hardhead, but closer up they are 
>quite different - with the wingtips well above their tails and amazingly 
>bright blue bills.
