Spot-billed Duck

Anas poecilorhyncha

Description:

The spot-billed duck also known as the spotbill, is a dabbling duck which breeds in tropical and eastern Asia. It has three populations which are treated as subspecies here the Indian spot-billed duck (A. poecilorhyncha poecilorhyncha), Eastern spot-billed duck (A. poecilorhyncha zonorhyncha), and Burmese spot-billed duck (A. poecilorhyncha haringtoni). Some authors elevate the eastern population as a species, Anas zonorhyncha. The name is derived from the yellow and red spot on the bill.

Habitat:
