Black Bellied Whistling Ducks

Black bellied whistling ducks are one of my favorites.  The name is entirely appropriate:  they have black bellies and yes, rather than a quack, the sound they emit is a soft, monotonal whistle.  Their bright pink beaks and gorgeous black eyes really make them standout.  They are a happy addition to the ponds in my neighborhood.
