After not seeing any for 3-4 years, I've seen the Black-bellied Whistling Ducks 3 days in a row at 2 different sites.

Great shots, Rog. I saw them in Panama, but got no shots as good as these. Well done.

Nice find Rog, and great shots of them. I've seen quite a few in Florida, they seemed to whistle more when flying.

Thank you, Ian. Glad you like. Have you posted any in the past? Do not recall seeing any from Bob, either.

Thanks, John. I have not heard them, but my hearing is about zilch. See Ian's comments above.
