About This Image

In the midst of standard mallards and white farm ducks, I found this one. Not sure of the breed; maybe you know.

Looks like he borrowed some other duck's feet! LOL! Very pretty coloring.

The book gives no variation of male and female coloring, so I assume they look alike. They sometimes have a communal nest that can have up to 100 eggs!

Since you are in TX and I am in LA, maybe these are just Southern Ducks? Now the big question -- is it male or female?

I do know what this is--I've been observing them just this year. They are called black bellied whistling ducks. They are unusual because of their long necks and legs that make them look more like a goose. You got an excellent picture. Note the orange bill.
