Black Bellied Whistler Ducks
Ironically, it was the damn government telling me to stay inside (I.T. guy that is normally indoors 99% of the time) that motivated me to get out and take some shots.

Whistlers from earlier today:

Same here. Like doves, they seem to have calendars that let them know when it’s time to GTFO.

I have them all around me till hunting season. Then. like Kaiser Soze, they just disappear.

I’ve got around 40-50 of them in my front yard every morning, sometimes I count 100.
Come winter time they disappear and show back up when it warms up.
They can make some noise.

One of those double-hyphened common names when considering the official AOU name.

Black-bellied whistling-duck.


The night-herons are also double-hyphened.

Yellow-crowned and Black-crowned Night-herons.

Been seeing quite a few in the last couple of weeks flying over late in the evening at dusk.
Must be roosting near by.
I’ve known them as Mexican Whistlers

I saw three females with about 20 babies walking down St Charles Ave towards the Miss River on 1st St ion Friday. Craziest thing I’ve seen in awhile.

I don’t know what it is about being in the middle of the road that they like so much. Those things are everywhere around here and are often seen standing or waddling down the middle of roads and turn rows.

I think this is the species of you kill one you can often call the group back in and kill more and more. Beautiful ducks just not real bright.
