Black-bellied Whistling-ducks are fun!

Hello everyone!

Last weekend, I went back to Wakodahatchee wetlands, for a little sunset adventure.

This time, my nieces Amanda and Ale were in town, so I invited them to come with me.

It was late afternoon and stormy. The birds were already perching on the trees and there were a group of black bellied ducks along the boardwalk that were truly performing for us. One of them even posed for a selfie!

Yes, I’m adorable, sociable and very noisy!

The whistling-ducks were formerly known as tree-ducks, but only a few, such as the Black-bellied Whistling-Duck actually perch or nest in trees. http://www.allaboutbirds.org

selfie time!

The purpose of this visit was to introduce the kids not only to photography, but to nature and most importantly wildlife. My nieces loved it so the visit was successful!
