    Can someone tell me what kind of duck this is? Have seen a pair roosting in a tree on the ranch in Bandera, Texas. Was told once they are "Whistling Ducks" but have never seen or heard of them before.

    [rquote=1863855&tid=129779&author=coonman]That is right they are called a black bellied whistling duck. We use to get into them in the la marsh and every once awhile have in the MS delta.
    Here is a link about them in texas:

    Seems like it would be hard to whistle with a beak like that but thats just a novice observation.

    I suppose if you were in southern geographies, it could be the lesser known whistlin dixie duck.

    now i don't know this for sure but most ducks who get called whistlin ducks, the only duck i know that is a whistlin duck except for the actual whistlin duck is called that due to the sound their little bitty wings make trying to hurl their fat bodies through the air and ifn' you get one of them on the water you better keep shooting cause you will flat wear yourself and a retriver after the whistlers. hope that cleared it up.:D
