Description

It is unusual for me to see Paradise Shelducks in the central city but apparently they are sometimes seen. It was a pair (as usual) on the footpath next to what is now a grassed area. The Avon River is a few hundred metres to the north of where I sighted the shelducks. They seemed unperturbed by the rush hour traffic.

On a wee isle at the other side of the lake saw this Paradise Duck Family.

That's right grahame. Dad is 'on duty' while mum has 'time out'.

(Female parry has multi-colored feathers and a white head.)

Like the pukeko also recorded on this date, the putangitangi at travis are also well into courting behaviour and this pair seem to have marked out the flooded paddocks on the east side of the track opposite the main ponds as where they might nest. In spite of a large group of school children visiting these guys stood their ground and defended their territory with poses and calls.
