Black bellied whistling ducks are a rare sight to see up close. Years ago they would hang out right on the trail and the trees right on the trail would be full of them.  Now you can only hear them whistling off in the distance.

It’s always fun to see the little purple clowns (gallinules).

  1. Saw the “purple clowns” on Our World Tuesday and had to pop over to see if they were Takahe, a critically endangered New Zealand bird that looks quite similar. Wonder collection of birds. Your photos are really detailed.
