Black-Bellied Whistling Duck



About Black-Bellied Whistling Duck
This beautiful duck is often found perching on trees or shrubs. A long-legged, broad-winged, and long-necked duck. The adult has a bright red bill obvious on gray face; the eye is surrounded by a bold white eye ring. Lower neck and breast tawny with contrasting black belly and flanks. Upperparts warm brown. Folded wings show whitish shoulder/forewings, and dark primaries and tertials. The legs are bright pink.

These ducks are likely to be confused with the Fulvous Whistling Duck, which lacks the red bill and black belly. The large white wing patch of the Black-bellied is telling mark.

The call of this bird is a multi-syllabic nasal whistle, pe-che, or a longer pr-che-che-ne.

They breed in April. Their nest is usually made in a tree cavity, nest box or on the ground in a grassy area. The female will lay up to 13 eggs at a time. Both the female and male take turns incubate the eggs for about 28 days, and they both take care of the eggs and the chicks.

Young Black-Bellied Whistling ducks begin to fly when they are about 56 days old. However, they will stay with their parents until they are about 144 days old.
