This duck also know as the Cape Wigeon comes from eastern and southern Africa where it is found in shallow lakes, marshes and coastal lagoons. They are dabbling ducks but they can also dive for food which consists of water plants, plankton, crustaceans and tadpoles. There is very little difference between the sexes.
