I found a record from three days ago of a maned duck at the hoddy estuary park eBird hotspot, I’m not sure if that was intentional or not, I don’t know how rare they are in nz

Hi Alfie,
This is a known location for what is a small breeding population. They arrived about 10 years ago at the playhouse cafe ponds and have spread out in the area in low numbers.
