An attractive oddity
This is the one that's not sure if it's duck or goose. They are on the large size for a duck and appear to have the bill of a goose. This means that they are the only representatives in the genus Chenonetta (making this a monotypic genus).

Maned Ducks are fairly widespread in Australia.
