One morning we saw two wild Black-bellied Whistling-Ducks that flew in to eat and visit with our other ducks. I'm ashamed to say that our fat ducks chased the other ducks away  from their food. Since these ducks are so neat looking I decided to look them up.Click here to see better pictures and click here to learn more. I learned that

  • These ducks are so different than other ducks, one bird watcher called them the most un-duck-like.  
  • Black-bellied Whistling-Ducks eat lots of plant material, but also eats water bugs too. 
  • Most of these ducks look alike.
  • Whistling-Ducks pairs stay together for life. 
  • Females share nest and lay an average of 13 eggs.   

Sorry this picture didn't turn out well.
