The Southern Pochard is a strange looking duck with brown feathers and blood red eyes.
The Southern Pochard (Afrikaans name, Bruineend) is a fairly large duck with male and female looking quite different. We saw the at the Strandfontein Sewage Works.
The male is dark brown with a red eye and a pale blue bill. The female has pale face patches. The female quacks and the male makes a whining sound.
