Eastern Spot-billed Duck
Swept away by the current of the river and spinning round and round.
|Eastern Spot-billed Duck
|Inhabits Honshu and southwards.
They live in groups near the water. From spring to summer, they sometimes swim with about 10 chicks. Nests are built in grasslands along rivers in urban areas. They cry "gaa-gaa" and "guegwe" and eat plant seeds and snails. It is also a pest because it tramples and eats rice plants.
They live in rivers, estuaries, and paddy fields. It is commonly seen in human living areas such as park ponds. They usually sit and rest during the day and become active at night. Eat plant seeds. The 10 or so chicks that hatch from the eggs are precocious and swim with the parent birds.
It was swimming in Chofu Ichino River. It was swirling around with the current of the river. It is often seen in rivers and ponds where the flow is calm, and even if humans approach it, it will not run away if it is within a certain distance.
