Conservation status
In serious trouble

The grey duck has striking facial strips, a leaden grey bill and a green patch of colour (speculum) on its secondary flight feathers. These features separate this handsome native from the blue-tinted speculum of the introduced mallard hens and scruffy hybrids.

The grey duck has been underestimated for too long, Strangers is here to get them in the number 1 spot! We sell eco-products and are quackers about ecology and science communication! Help us get our under-duck into the limelight where they belong!
