Resident. Common, occurring widely and recorded in 79% of the pentads. Present on most farm dams and along the Mogol and Palala rivers but highest concentrations are in irrigated agricultural land, especially in the Alma valley where flocks of hundreds may occur, often associating here with flocks of Knob-billed Duck. Breeds year-round, often using Hamerkop nests for this purpose.
