Black bellied whistling duck


There's a bunch of them in S. TX usually under a corn feeder.

Known as "guichichi" where I am from. The name comes from their particular squeak. Good taste, specially if grain fed. Only duck you see down there 99.9% of the time but for the occasional tourist teals.

Ha! Yes, moved up North to study and then work. Love the area though. It was quite the revelation when I realized how many different species of ducks can be hunted here. It was also very surprising the day I was fishing and heard a couple of them guichichis flying overhead. My reaction was: not you guys again!

there's about 100 of them in my neighborhood pond. You can shoot them off roofs. I could never get them to follow me to the lease though.
