DUCKS, GEESE & SWANS OF THE WORLD- Click on the photo for enlarged image.
I am trying to photograph every species of wildfowl in the world, as in our travels to see seabirds and waders I found we were coming across many species. I realise this may be an impossible task, but am including shots of birds in captivity. Where the thumbnail has an orange border I have not photographed that species in the wild, (although some images are captive where the wild-taken shot isn't very good). The gaps are obvious, but I am not certain that all of these are kept in captivity, especially in the UK. I would be most grateful for any information regarding the (captive) whereabouts of any of the missing species. My "most-wanted" is Brazilian Merganser- I saw these in Brazil, but was just lining up my camera when they were flushed by somebody walking down the road to look at a plant!!! It was a mammal tour rather than a birding trip so I didn't throw him in the river! Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be a captive breeding program anywhere, but given the species critically endangered status it may happen one day.
