This morning I observed a very large flock of Black-bellied Whistling Ducks in Pine Bluff. They are located in a water and grass-filled depression in a large field, approx. 1/2 mile south of the junction of Commerce Rd and Hwy. 63 in Pine Bluff. They were first noted by Wes McGeorge one week ago. Our estimate is that the flock numbers about 100 birds, which I would presume is unprecedented for Arkansas.
