Subject: Strange Duck
Spotted a solitary duck I have never seen on July 7. Location: White Co., wading and foraging in a ditch on golf course. Cinnamon brown. About the size of a mallard but longer legs and neck. Very bright red bill. Narrow black streak on crown and down nape of neck. Seemed more comfortable wading than swimming. Quite docile. Was able to approach within 15 feet. Never flew off. Could this be a Black-bellied Whistling Duck? Can respond at: <wkholloway...>
