Black-bellied Whistling-Ducks on Lake Mango

Black-bellied Whistling Ducks Beautiful Black-bellied Whistling-Ducks were hanging out on my fence this morning. I've lived on the lake for 3 years, and this is this first year I have seen them here. They range from South America up through Florida, Louisiana, Southeastern Arkansas, Texas, and Arizona. Though, in the U.S., only Florida, parts of Arizona and southern Texas are year-round habitats.

I study philosophy and social theory at the University of South Florida. I am also a photographer, map lover and sometimes poet.
