We received some great photos of #PhilippineDucks from @talarakfoundation at #NegrosIsland, the #Philippines. Some are in a #captive setting and some of these are #wild. Rehabilitated and captive bred birds are reintroduced in #huntingfree areas and the foundation offers regular feeding. At Negros Island there is still a pretty stable population. In some cases, flocks of 1000 #Philippine #ducks can be sighted; the birds benefit from rice and #sugarcane #plantations.
The #nestbox at the left was designed for #tawnyowls, the old #barrel at right was found in a #barn. But I'm sure both will serve well as #duck #nestboxes! (Ok, the barrel might need another colour)

Can never get bored of watching the wintering sea ducks at #StanleyPark/ #EnglishBay, #Canada. #BarrowsGoldeneye and #SurfScoters

Surf scoters are one of the least studied birds in North America; their population is thought to have gone through a drastic decline in the 20th century but there isn't enough data to know for sure. What we do know is that they dive deep underwater and use that incredibly unique beak to grab mollusks and other food before returning to the surface. #surfscoter #ornithology #waterfowl #wildfowl #scoter #seaducks

Some diffent types of educational signs about wildfowl: hooded merganser, eurasian wigeon and red-breasted geese.

Our flock of #Baerspochards is thriving well. Juvenile males slowly get their white eye colour and seem to get more interest in females too.
