One of the most abundant ducks in the world and the ancestor to most blood lines of domestic ducks. They forage in water by dabbing or submerging their head and neck; on land, they graze, pluck seeds and will even grub for roots
One of the most intelligent species of bird. Very social – may gather in communal roosts of many thousands in a single grove. They are very opportunistic when it comes to feeding – which they mostly do on the ground.
