Freckled Ducks (Stictonetta naevosa), male (top) and female. Native to southern Australia, it is protected by law in all states. The ducks are easily identified by their large heads with a peaked crown. The Freckled Duck feeds by dabbling in shallow water, often by wading near the edge. It prefers large, well-vegetated swamps, but moves to open water after breeding or in dry periods.
