The Pink-Eared Duck is often seen in small flocks on shallow open water.

They prefer shallow floodwaters, fresh or brackish water and coastal mangroves.

They have strange, large, spatulate shaped bills that they use to sieve aquatic organisms, algae, plankton and floating seeds.

We saw them at Centennial Park in Sydney where they seemed to gather together, put their heads together and move around in circles.
