These are photos from a day out at the Lane Cove National Park. It’s a lovely place for a picnic and a bit of wildlife stalking. 🙂
I actually saw a pair of dusky moorhens step onto the bank and copulate. It all happened too fast to redirect the camera from the water dragons I was photographing. Eh, too bad.
What do you call a dusky moorhen when it is a male? A moorcock?
I haven’t been able to find these ducks on any of the Australian native bird pages I’ve researched so far. Could they be descended from escaped domestic fowl? Please leave a comment if you know what they are.
