Whistling Ducks

Length--18-19 in.

Weight--1¾ lbs.

The trailing legs and rounded wings of these slow flying ducks makes

them look bigger than they are.

Both species are primarily Mexican. In the U.S., the black-bellied is

found only in south Texas and Louisiana. The fulvous also occurs there

and in Florida with occasional stragglers further north along both

coasts and the Mississippi Valley. The fulvous is the more common of the

two species in the United States.

Sexes are alike. Both species have shrill whistling calls.
