Boynton Beach White-faced Whistling Duck

White-faced Whistling DuckJanuary 3, 2018:¬† We kick off the new year with a White-faced Whistling Duck, currently hanging out on a neighborhood Boynton Beach pond with a huge mixed flock of Black-bellied Whistling Ducks and Egyptian Geese. This species is not native to North America and not “ABA countable,” although it is widespread in most of South America and sub-Egyptian GooseSaharan Africa, including Madagascar. The individual represented here is quite docile and most likely an escapee. It is keeping company with a huge mixed flock of Black-bellied Whistling Ducks and Egyptian Geese – the largest number by far of each of these two species I have ever seen in one place, literally too many to accurately count.
