Cool Facts:

While the United States is at the extreme northern range limit for Fulvous Whistling-ducks, this species of waterfowl is one of the most widespread in the world.

Whistling-ducks have very odd mating habits compared to other ducks. Whistling-ducks typically do not have elaborate courtship displays, male ducks help care for ducklings, and mated pairs may stay together for years.
