A male Paradise Shelduck, mounted on a piece of wood in a standing position. Wings closed. Brown, chestnut and cream colourings. Wings have a greeny blue sheen.
It is a widespread duck inhabiting lowland wetlands, and grasslands. It is a game bird but their numbers are so high they are not at conservation risk. They are often seen in pairs making lots of noise.
