Blue duck, also known as khio khio, the Maori name, is native to New Zealand and is not found elsewhere in the world. With only an estimated 700 pairs in South Island and 2000 to 3000 pairs in North Island the species is considered under threat. For habitat it favours fast-flowing rivers. This photograph was taken from Highway 94 beside the Cleddau River close to Milford Sound, South Island, New Zealand. 201004045012..© Victor Patterson, 54 Dorchester Park, Belfast, N Ireland.
