Masses of Plumed Whistling Ducks at Pilton

10 August 2016

On the way to a job at Pilton on the Great-Dividing Range in South-East Queensland, I noticed an enormous flock of Plumed Whistling Ducks (Dendrocygna eytoni) on a rural dam that could be viewed from the road. There were thousands of birds surrounding the entire dam. We had to stop and have a look at them in their massive numbers.  An amazing sight.
