"Tree Ducks"

Black-bellied Whistling-Duck, Wheatley, Ontario, Canada. June 18, 2019.

Made a quick trip to see these rarities after seeing a report on birdalert.
Well worth the drive. Nice surprise to find them exactly where they were reported.
Dendrocygna autumnalis
The whistling-ducks were formerly known as tree-ducks, but only a few, such as the Black-bellied Whistling-Duck actually perch or nest in trees.
