Meet the Burdekin duck that is a species found in the coastal tropics of northern Australia, as well as in New Guinea and the Maluku Islands of eastern Indonesia and some of the Moluccas in eastern Indonesia. In Australia, its primary range is coastal tropical northern Australia, from central Queensland through northern Northern Territory
These pretty critters form long-term pair-bonds, and are usually encountered in lone pairs or small flocks. During the wet season the males commonly become very irritable, and have been observed attacking their mates. (strange behavior for sure)
The diet consists mainly of mollusks, insects, sedge materials and algae. Pairs start searching for nesting sites during the months of January and February. They nest close to their primary food source, often in the hollow limbs of trees, which makes habitat destruction a particular issue.

Gen 2 Kloak Mister
offers a highly effective concealment and hunting scent attraction application to hunters in a reusable, rechargeable unit.
The lightweight and compact Gen 2 Kloak Mister is designed to use scent cartridges that each employ a proprietary cotton wick that carries the scent to an ultrasonic transducer. The transducer converts the scent to a micro-fine mist, emitting it into the air at intervals selected by the hunter. The atomized mist is naturally carried downwind, broadcasting the scent for long-range attraction or cover-up. The 2.5-ounce cartridges are mess-free, easy to install, and are interchangeable while on the hunt.
