Radjah Shelduck

Radjah radjah (Lesson, 1828)

The Raja Shelduck or Radjah Shelduck (Tadorna radjah), also known as the Burdekin Duck in Australia, is a species of shelduck. Placed in the genus Tadorna, it differs markedly in external morphology, and mtDNA cytochrome b sequence data suggests its status should be reinvestigated. The genus name Tadorna comes from Celtic roots and means "pied waterfowl", essentially the same as the English "shelduck". Source: Wikipedia
