🔶️Black Bellied Whistling Ducks🔶️ - Widely known as "pijije" (also "pixixi" or "pichichi"), "chiriría" or "sirirí" in Latin America, though this can also refer to other whistling-ducks and a qualifier such as "ala blanca" or "aliblanco" ("white-winged") is usually added to signify this species. In Mexico, it is also called pato maízal ("cornfield duck") due to its habit of visiting such fields after harvest. And since it is one of only two whistling-duck species native to North America, it is occasionally just known as "the whistling duck" in the southern USA. . . .
