Beautiful Birds Make MRIS Home! 1A beautiful pair of Mountain Ducks have made the
Nyindamurra Nature Trail their home.
Mountain ducks, also known to the Noongar, as “guraga” pair for life – even before they are
mature enough to reproduce – and return to the same nesting site year after year. The ducks were identified by MRIS Wardandi Mentor , Josh Whiteland and the Year 3 class when they were on the track recently.
Yr 3 teacher Ashley Burke said the ducks have nested in a tree.
Despite its name, the
mountain duck is a lowland dweller and is Australia’s largest duck.
