Personally doubting between Anas sibilatrix and Anas versicolor.
Simply also thinking and trying to deduce... fun! =)
Ah, great! Indeed, I am convinced now. I saw a few pics of wings of Anas sibilatrix now, and that convinced me. Thanks! :-)
Liam knows a lot about birds, he can probably tell you for sure. Meanwhile, I found a picture browsing the net and it seems to match too: https://www.google.com/search?oe=utf-8&a...
Thanks for thinking along Patty! I understand what you mean; makes sense. Thing is I could find *no* other photos of these ducks with their wings spread; on every photo I saw they're folded. I'll wait a bit more to see if someone else has a better idea, but for now I'm with you! Chau también ;-)
I think it is the anas sibilatrix because of the way in which the white of the face is. The anas sibilatrix has only the front part of the face white, then, the neck, is black. THe anas versicolor has white both on the face and neck and a very clear line that divides the black top of the head from the white bottom part; in the former there is also white at the top of the head. Regarding this, I would say it is an anas sibilatrix. Greetings y chau =)
