The Australasian shoveler (Spatula rhynchotis) is a dabbling duck that lives in heavily vegetated swamps in southwestern and southeastern Australia, Tasmania, and New Zealand. It eats insects, crustaceans and seeds. While swimming, its bill is below the water surface and has fine hair-like components which strain the water and mud for food. It is also known as the Spoonbill Duck, Shovelbill, Blue-winged Shoveler and Stinker.
