In the Darebin Parklands, the waters of the Darebin Creek and the several ponds through the reserve offer a great environment for many species of waterfowl. Here is a male chestnut teal duck (Anas castanea) on top of nesting box. Chestnut teals are dabbling ducks found in Australia. They are protected under the National Parks and Wildlife Act 1974.

  2. Hello. Interesting post. The teal duck looks like a lonely one.
