The White Faced Whistling duck is a beautiful bird with a most unusual call, a three note loud whistle! Native to sub-Saharan Africa and much of South America these birds do not take flight as much as other waterfowl, preferring to stay on water or resting on sandbanks. Having said this, these birds do need to be kept in an aviary if they are not pinioned as they are capable of flying to find alternative lodgings if they decide to! At night time, unlike most wildfowl, the Whistling duck does not perch, preferring to rest on sandbanks and around a body of water. These birds are mainly ground nesting. Both sexes look alike. We hope to have these available from January 2023 SOLD AS PAIRS
