I saw these Black-bellied Whistling Ducks at Lake Mira Mar in The Villages, FL, on Sept. 7, 2016 and also at Paradise Lake in The Villages on the same day. I enjoy spotting these pretty rust, black, white and pink ducks! They whistle when communicating in similar ways other ducks quack. We are fortunate to have several small flocks of whistlers here at the moment! Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger version of the picture. By the way, my computer has been repaired and I am back to my regular schedule of posts.
Black Bellied Whistling Ducks are so very pleasing and cute that I love sharing the pictures of those I see here in The Villages, Florida. I took these pictures on July 23, 2016 at Lake Mira Mar in Spanish Springs. The ducks are mostly active in the early morning and late in the afternoon or early evening.
These are ducks with personality! I so enjoy seeing them with their pink bills, legs and feet. Beautiful or handsome waterfowl!

Black-bellied Whistling Ducks, or “Whistlers” are such cuties I just had to share a few snapshots I took at a little parkland pond here in The Villages, FL, last Saturday afternoon. The pond is the same one that I spotted the Florida Mottled Duck ducklings at.
Whistlers, as you may imagine, do not quack but do whistle. They have a pretty pink bill with the same shade of pink on their legs and feet. Both genders pretty much look the same. These ducks are a bit like the Mallards in that they eat aquatic plants, insects, tiny fish, tiny frogs, and grains. This bunch is likely local and not migratory ducks here. It is always fun to see the Whistling Ducks! Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger picture. Enjoy!
Black-bellied Whistling Ducks, or “Whistlers” are extremely cute ducks! I saw a small flock of the whistlers at a local park lake last evening at dusk. The bunch of ducks were on the shore at the Veteran’s Park in The Villages, Florida, near the Spanish Springs town square. Such cuties!
The whistlers were at the park with some Chinese white geese, some Mallard Ducks, Common Coots, mixed breed ducks, and a lone Muscovy Duck. I enjoy seeing all the various kinds of waterfowl, wading birds and other critters at all of the small lakes and ponds here in my new community!
