They live in dams, lagoons, marshes and wetlands. They can
be seen in small flocks on the banks, near reeds, crumps,
bulrush, as they rest or while they spruce up themselves.
They have an acute sexual dimorphism: males are more
attractive while females are more monochromatic. They both
have black beaks. The main feature in the males is the white
stripe along their necks.
Although they only winter in the peninsula, some individuals
can be seen all along the year. They can be watched in the
flooded marshes and the inland lagoons.
