Pacific Black Duck: Digging up the Tasty Bits

Pacific Black Duck, Anas superciliosa

+====================+

I suspect its the male of a pair, and while she is brooding their clutch, he took to raiding the grasses after rain.

I was quite impressed that his bill could dig into the ground and come up with the onion weed bulbs, and then few shakes to remove the earth and down it went.
