ABOUT THE ART
Fulvous Whistling Duck resting in a patch of leaves. These duck have a beautiful cooper or chestnut color to them. Adult fulvous whistling ducks of both sexes have a rufous-brown crown and upper nape, which becomes blackish down the center of the hindneck.
The sides of the head, neck, chest and belly are a rich rufous-buff, with the sides of the neck paler, almost whitish, with fine dark striations. The back is dark brown with chestnut feather fringes, and the rump is white. Ivory-edged side and flank feathers form a striking border between the sides and back. A distinctive white "V" separates the brownish-black tail from the dark-colored back. The bill, legs and feet are blue-gray and the iris is dark brown They are vocal both in flight and when feeding, uttering a two-note squealing whistle, "k-weeoo," and during disputes a harsh "kee."
Fulvous Whistling Ducks like to nest in leaves and cut grass.
