The Australian wood duckmaned duck or maned goose (Chenonetta jubata) is a small goose found throughout much of Australia. They prefer to graze on grass rather than take to water.

The preferred habitat is wooded farmland, but they will make do with freshwater of any sort, from rivers to lakes. The male’s uneven nape feathers are responsible for the name. The female lacks the mane, but is an attractive bird with her striped face and mottled underparts.

They form a strong bond in pairs and are popular in collections as they tend to keep to themselves and not trouble other ducks.
