A Falcated Duck


A drake Falcated Duck was a nice find yesterday near my apartment...........


It wasn't even particularly shy although it was physically difficult to get close.


I seem to have seen a lot of this species over the last year and a half................




Definitely one of the most attractive east Asian ducks..................





Nothing in the way of other passage migrants: just a couple of Asian Brown Flycatcher a couple of days ago.......

  2. A very handsome duck I have yet to see. They show up at Mai Po in Hong Kong from time to time but none were present when I was there unfortunately.
