Rare Birds to Southern Arizona: Black-bellied Whistling Duck
More common in Texas and parts of Florida, the Black-bellied Whistling Duck is occasionally seen in the most southern waterholes of Arizona -- not more than about 50 miles from the US/Mexico border. This photo was taken at Cottonwood Pond, a small waterhole in Las Cienegas near Sonoita.
