These ducks were part of a random conversation yesterday, in a boat filled with naturalists and like minded people. We were out along the coast here and coming across a large number of species. The talked turned to how many birds we now commonly see that have moved to the Lowcountry. We did have a few people from ‘away’ but locals all said, at the same time, Whistling Ducks LOL.

Small hole, big bird, tight squeeze. The scientists all agreed on this analysis.
