Whistling Duck

Whistling Duck

Spotted this Black-bellied Whistling Duck on an old Wood Duck box. Not sure how a big Whistler would fit, but they must. Not the first time I’ve seen this in the swamps.

At least the old box is getting some use.

The shot’s a bit dark, this was taken pretty early in the morning.

    1. Pretty big for a wild duck isn’t it 😁😁. Around 4 years ago a few showed up in the South Carolina Lowcountry for the first time. More keep coming. This spring I found 100 in a marsh.

      They are not very ‘survival savvy’ from what I can see. We have all types of things that like duck. I see them parading their young around out in the open now. I’m sure they will learn.
