The return of the masked duck (Nomonyx dominicus)

Alexander Tinti | February 9, 2022

We are excited to announce that a new animal species found a new habitat in the Refugio: the masked duck (Nomonyx dominicus), a reclusive and rarely seen diving duck of the tropical lowlands. They feed at night and during the day one can see them sleeping on the pond never far from the shore. They obviously enjoy their new home in between wildlife ponds and underbrush and we hope they will become regular breeders in the Refugio.
