The Black-bellied Whistling Duck

Sighted in Lake Eustis, Florida. It can become skittish and difficult to shoot at times. Its reddish brown colors and yellowish orange bill with its white tipped wings make it very distinct. In Europe this duck is not known. Its common name in Central and S. America ispichichi, suirirí piquirojo, pato maizal, and pijia or pato silvon.Shot at ISO 400, f/8, 1/250, at 400mm with the Canon 60D and the 100-400mm L IS Canon lens.

  1. Wow! Great photos! These shots helped us to identify four that we spotted at a small pond in Nokomis, Florida (off of Rt 41)
