Philippine Duck

Anas luzonica

The Philippine Duck is endemic to the Philippines. It likes both fresh and saltwater habitats, and it feeds on fish, shrimps, insects, rice and young vegetation. The population of Philippine Duck has drastically declined over the last decades due to habitat change and overhunting.

The above picture was taken at the Zoological Garden of Berlin, Germany, in August 2010.
