This large web-footed bird likes open, shallow, salty or brackish expanses of water in marshes and ponds, which explains its strong presence in the Camargue. These Zones allow him to find his food mainly consisting of crustaceans and algae, which he filters using his beak which has a comb system allowing him to filter water to retain nutrients.
