Wild Bird Wednesday: Wandering Whistling-Duck

The Wandering Whistling-Duck is a large duck with rich red-brown plumage overall, with a paler face, front of neck and upper breast. There is a dark stripe on the crown of head, nape and back of neck. The bill and legs are dark.
There are elongated flank plumes, which are off-white with chestnut edges. In flight, the dark underwings, cinnamon and chestnut underbody, white undertail and trailing dark legs are seen.


This species is also known as the Whistling Tree-Duck, Water Whistling-Duck and the Red Whistler.
