Comb duck is one of the world's more distinctive and widespread tropical ducks. The Comb Duck is large and very distinctive, and is unmistakable within the Neotropics. It can often be seen flying over water, and is eye-catching and distinctive, with its broad wings and striking black-and-white plumage, especially when seen against a background of green vegetation. Comb Ducks can also often be seen grazing on small fish and invertebrates by swimming slowly and dabbling on the surface. Comb Ducks are sexually dimorphic: the male is larger than the female and has a large, black, oblong crest above the bill. The Comb Duck is the only member of its genus. A male Comb duck was rescued by Jivdaya Charitable Trust from Indu Group Gujrat (Sabarmati) on 16th August 2019. After examination and X-ray, our Vet found that the comb duck had a minor fracture in his right wing. After diagnosed our vets done pinning surgery now the bird is under observation and recovery in the treatment room, regular bandaging and physiotherapy given to the bird for healing. Hoping its’ early recovery and release in wild habitat.
