New Zealand Scaup 2

New Zealand Scaup.(Aythya novaeseelandiae)

With my beady eyes
I scan for danger
And pleasure

The New Zealand scaup or pāpango is a short, round diving duck. The male is glossy dark brown and black with yellow eyes. The female is dark brown and often has a vertical white band at the base of the bill. They tend to avoid danger by diving rather than by flying. ~ Bernard
