Introduced Species
A large duck (50-65 cm), it is the most abundant and widespread of the dabbling ducks. It is an introduced species in South Africa and feral populations of the duck now exist in the western Cape and in Gauteng. It inhabits any open stretch of water. Hybrydisation with the Yellow-billed Duck is a concern in South Africa and various programmes to reduce numbers of the bird in the wild are in place
