    To quote from one of Australia's main bird field guides - 'a very strange duck'. The male musk duck has a unique leathery flap under its beak. The sight and sound of the display of the male is truly bizarre - shown here. Musk Ducks can be found wild in Canberra see: https://vimeo.com/105104021

      To quote from one of Australia's main bird field guides - 'a very strange duck'. The male musk duck has a unique leathery flap under its beak. The musk duck is found in southern Australia, it is uncommon and nomadic. In Canberra, the best place to see it is a relatively new suburban open space cum water quality control lake - Yerrabi Pond in the northern suburbs. A female with 3 chicks is shown. The chicks like to ride on mums back, but these are getting too big for more than one at a time now. They feed by diving, for things such as Yabbies (freshwater crayfish). The bizarre male display can be seen at https://vimeo.com/117707538
