Thanks to Caloosa Bird Club member Derick Driemeyer of Bonita  
Springs, we have a photograph of a stunning Paradise Shelduck  
(Tadorna variegata) taken at the Bailey Tract of Ding Darling NWR in  
mid-February 2006. This species is a long way from its native New  
Zealand. Although an obvious escape, I thought that birders might be  
interested in seeing a picture of this handsome duck. Go to:
