Notes on the pink-eared duck


, : Notes on the pink-eared duck. Emu 57(4): 265-268

Although confined mostly to inland areas, they have appeared in coastal areas as well. Inland conditions are believed responsible for this. The author's account of one of these "breeding-up areas" and his observations are given. Muddy water with dense, bushy cover is the breeding habitat. In treeless depressions, they use old nests of the Black-tailed Native-hen, to which they add a sticky down. Generally a tame duck with bizarre plumage, it does not indulge in intricate display. Flighting is mostly by night, when its melodious whistle can be heard. This sp. dominated the area with an approximate population of 90,000 pairs in a 56-mile-long tract. By Feb. large majority had left the area.
