Whistlers on Wednesday: Whistling Ducks in The Villages, Florida

 

Black-bellied Whistling Ducks are sweeties!  Yes, I just love these ducks that have real personality and gorgeous looks.  I spotted a beautiful family of mother father and ducklings at the decorative pond in front of the Glenview Country Club in The Villages, Florida on Monday afternoon.  I also have seen these ducks at the Freedom Point lakes on the Morse Blvd. side near the multi-modal pathway.  By the way, the ducklings now have blue bills and feet which will eventually turn coral pink as they mature.  Both drakes and hens look very similar.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the picture.
