>I came across another duck family this afternoon leaving work.
My first thought was "Ducks have to *work* in Australia? Neoliberalism is definitely going too far, but at least they seem to get parental leave" 😆
but I guess posing for a nature photographer /would/ count as work - this is also the first time I've read about both parents in a duck family looking after offspring (maybe AU ducks are getting smarter?) 🦆
It might just be the wood ducks. I haven't observed many ducklings from other Australian duck species to compare.
@david interesting species - very goose-like in their behaviour (I didn't even know until today you had different ducks in Australia, I though ducks were by and large the same species all around the world...)
@vfrmedia oh yes, we have many types of ducks here.
@vfrmedia some of these are geese obviously because the app I have sorts them together
