Black-Bellied Whistling Duck

Dendrocygna autumnalis


A GIANT flock of these live in Hermann Park, splitting their time between the fountain, the pond, and the bayou. My photos cover the first two. I'd say I saw maybe between 70 to 100 out there today after the thunderstorm.


Hermann Park, but apparently seasonally in my part of Texas.


They make the most bizarre noise - like a cross between a honk and a quack and a whistle (duh). I wasn't sure if they were geese or ducks at first!
