These are among the smallest duck-like birds and can be found along various coastal and fresh waters in southern Australia. Male similar to male Australian Shoveler and female could be confused with female Greay Teal or female Pacific Black Duck, but is smaller than both.

I like these cute, friendly birds that are accustomed to humans around local parks.
