Black-Bellied Tree Duck are large, goose-like ducks with a long neck and legs and a short tail. Their dark plumage of black, chestnut, and gray is beautifully contrasted by a bright orange bill; pink legs; a broad, white wing stripe; and a thin, white eye ring. These ducks are very personable and have a more laid back personality than many other species of wild ducks. Black-Bellied Tree Ducks form strong monogamous bonds and they often stay together for many years. Like all Tree Ducks, they produce a unique musical whistle.
