Crazy ducks! They were quite high up in this tree by the Avon River near Barbadoes Street. They seemed quite happy up there and not too worried by me taking their photos. The one with the white head is the female. Guess the view up there was pretty good!

    First butterflies, now ducks — what will be next in the trees of Christchurch? I’ve seen the paradise ducks on land, inthe water, and in the air, but never in trees. Fascinating.
