The Philippine Duck is a large dabbling duck of the Anas genus and is endemic to the philippines.

Due to loss of habitat and overhunting the Philippine Duck is in decline and is currently classed as Vulnerable.

The Philippine Duck is a shy and nervous duck and will quickly fly off if disturbed. It may be seen in large flocks outside of the breeding season but usually occurs in pairs or small groups.
