Shoveler Duck

Shoveler Duck NZ

In brilliant plumage
He pursues a mate
Until she catches him

The male shoveler is New Zealand's most handsome duck, with variegated plumage, blue-grey head with a white vertical stripe between the eye and bill, a striking reddish-brown breast, and blue wings. Nature has lavished more beauty on the male than the less attractive female. ~ Bernard
