Black-bellied Whistling Duck

Another trip to South Florida brought another visit to the Wakodahatchee Wetlands (see the January 2016  image of the month).  Not surprisingly, things had changed in the six months since our last visit.  Gone were the Palm Warblers that seemed to be in every shrub and tree.  Purple Gallinules were also scarce.  However, the Black-bellied Whistling Ducks were literally hanging out on the rails of the boardwalk allowing for close views (and photos) of their subtly beautiful plumage.
