Falkland Steamer Duck

Falklands Steamer Duck, Sea Lion Island, Falkland IslandsThe Falkland steamer duck is one of just two birds endemic to the Falkland Islands. It also happens to be flightless. This particular steamer duck was out for a morning stroll along the shoreline of Sea Lion Island, most likely looking for a little breakfast.
