We're delighted to have a strong population of strange-tailed tyrants at the reserve. So much so that we've adopted these beautiful and endangered birds as the symbol of the Trust
The Brazilian Duck is abundant in the Ibera Marshes.
This medium sized duck of 35cm is predominantly brown with a brown and white facew and a black longitudinal stripe down the neck. The bill and legs are bright red and there is a noticeable bluish/green speculum when seen in flight.
The female is similar but has a bluish bill with a white spot behind. She also has white lores.
