5 Black Bellied Whistler ducks have spent the last few days floating around in the bay just off of the beach at BayFront Park. This extremely rare sighting has been the talk of the local birdwatching community. The main home range for these birds used to be southern Mexico to Venezuela/Columbia. The ducks are now commonly seen around southern Texas and Louisiana. Birdwatchers agree that their north creeping range can be attributed to climate change but a sighting this far north is indeed rare.
