    What an unusual bill on this duck! Just googled it and you could call it a comb duck… but the Latin name sounded more fun, sarcastic melon or something… ah yes…. Sarkidiornis melanotos :-P

    Great find and capture anyway! :-D

  • maybe the female gets to be sarcastic about her mate’s ridiculous snoz! thanks for visiting and all the great comments – i truly appreciate it.
