Plumed Whistling-Duck

Plumed Whistling-duck - Dendrocygna eytoni 


Yellow Waters, 23.7.2016, large number of birds - probably more than 200.


Common in northern Australia, but very uncommon in Victoria.  The light-coloured wing plumes easily distinguish them from Wandering Whistling-ducks, as does the light top of head and multi-coloured bill.
