Pacific Black duck

Pacific black duck

Pacific black duck, Anas superciliosa, IMG 3214 - Anas, the name of the genus to which this aquatic bird belongs, is a Latin word that simply means ‘duck’, but it’s also an Arabic word meaning ‘friendly’ and that’s an appropriate description of the Pacific black duck that many children and adults are sure to recognise as being among the varied species of waterbirds that they feed when visiting an urban park.
