     Australian Wood Duck

    Chenonetta jubata


    The Australian Wood Duck has adapted to modified environments remarkably well. You are just as Australian Wood Ducks loafing at the edge of a farm dam or ornamental pond as beside a swamp, or swimming on a reservoir as on a lake, or foraging on a golf course or in green pasture as in a water meadow or grassland. They even sometimes build their nests in chimneys instead of tree hollows. This level of adaptability has allowed the species to expand its range greatly since Europeans colonised Australia. ... - ...  This species is also known as the Maned Duck or the Maned Goose. ...

     The Australian wood duck, maned duck or maned goose (Chenonetta jubata) is a dabbling duck found throughout much of Australia. It is the only living species in the genus Chenonetta. Traditionally placed in the subfamily Anatinae (dabbling ducks), it might belong to the subfamily Tadorninae (shelducks);[2] the ringed teal may be its closest living relative.[3]


    The Australian wood duck was first described by the English ornithologist John Latham in 1801 under the binomial name Anas jubata.[4]

    The flightless New Zealand species Chenonetta finschi (Finsch's duck) which was formerly believed to constitute a monotypic genus (Euryanas) has been determined to belong to Chenonetta.[5] It became extinct before scientists could properly survey the New Zealand avifauna, but possibly as late as 1870 (based on a report of a flightless goose caught in Opotiki.[6]) ...

     Le Canard à crinière (Chenonetta jubata), chénonette à crinière ou bernache à crinière, est une espèce d'oiseaux de la famille des Anatidae.


    Il mesure entre 41 et 51 cm; ce qui fait d'elle la plus petite des bernaches. Il présente un net dimorphisme sexuel puisque le mâle se caractérise par sa tête brune et son plumage gris tandis que la femelle (et le jeune) est brune avec des marques blanches.

    Cet oiseau se rencontre près des lacs et des marais.


    La bernache à crinière est une brouteuse tout comme les oies. Elle se nourrit essentiellement de plantes, de roseaux et de végétaux aquatiques. Il lui arrive cependant d'être insectivore si l'occasion s'en présente. ...

     Canard à crinière

    Chenonetta jubata - Maned Duck

     ...Chez le canard à crinière, la silhouette générale ressemble beaucoup à celles des petites oies du genre Chloephaga : le corps est bombé, les pattes sont relativement longues, le bec est trapu et la poitrine est abondamment tapissée de petites taches noires et blanches.

    Chez le mâle, la tête et le cou ont de riches couleur brunes. Le capuchon est surmonté d'une crête qui ressemble à une crinière et qui peut être dressée pendant les parades. Le corps est majoritairement gris avec des vermiculures sur les flancs et du noir charbonneux sur la queue ainsi que sur le ventre et la zone anale. Le bec est gris foncé, les pattes gris-brun et les iris brun sombre. ...
