November - December 1993, Fairview Heights, St. Clair County (Albert Seppi) (MJIB 3:2:59)
     November 18, 1993, Fairview Heights, St. Clair County (2) (Dennis Oehmke)
     This pair mixed with a group of feral Mallards for eight weeks at a small pond at an apartment complex in suburban Fairview Heights. The birds survived into December as the local ponds began to freeze. In late December I observed one of the Whistling-Ducks dead on the ice as the other stood tucked at the shore. On my next visit the ice had melted and the specimen was lost. The surviving bird could not be relocated. At the time of the observation, the consensus was that these birds were very tame and likely not wild.
