White-faced Whistling Duck
Modimolle, Jan 2018

Resident. Common, occurring widely (recorded in 44% of the pentads) on dams, especially those in agricultural areas under irrigation. Localised in the north but widespread across the south-east, this perhaps linked to the higher rainfall here. A gregarious species, always in groups, sometimes in flocks that can number hundreds of birds. Breeds in summer.
