Will be passing through the Nelson area on Wednesday, any updates? Missed these birds last year, would love another crack at them...

Spent several hours over two days last summer chasing these birds, today we found this one without getting out of the car. At the Playhouse. No sign of the female, hopefully she's on a nest.

Finally got to see the Australian Wood Ducks last week at the Playhouse Cafe ponds in Mapua with my son Zef. We had 3 visits and each time the Wood Ducks were conveniently out in the open on the first pond, or on the lawn by the pond. On the second trip we counted 9 wood ducks (a pair with 3 ducklings, another pair with 1 duckling, and another adult). Good to see they are breeding.

I visited very briefly in the pissing rain today and spotted a pair with a fledgling duckling which I assume was the first pair in your photos Scott.
