Crested Duck, Straits of Magellan, Chile

This heavily-built duck is one of the commonest waterfowl of the Patagonian region, occurring not just on inland freshwater and brackish lagoons and ponds, but also along the seashores of the Patagonian and Fuegian channels and fjords, all the way down to the Cape Horn. During the breeding season is a highly territorial species and is not a rare event seen it attacking intruder individuals and even other duck species. This dabbling duck is very active by night, at least on the sea, where it feeds on large plankton right on the water's surface. Straits of Magellan, Chile - February 14, 2009 © Photo by Claudio F.

Fantastic pictures Claudio... great color and detail in the first one, and nice sense of action in the second.

This unique bird will surely be useful in the zoo and for the pet organization to save animals. finance essay
