White-backed Ducklings!

Category: Articles,Blog,Education,Featured,News

White-backed ducklings are as beautifully bizarre as the adults. Though anatomically similar to a stiff-tailed duck, they are considered an atypical whistling duck and are included within the tribe Dendrocygninae. Both males and females tend to and incubate the nest and subsequently brood the offspring, which necessitates the need for an absence of sexual dimorphism between the sexes; a shared trait among all whistling ducks. The eggs are a chocolate brown color, unique among ducks, and the ducklings have a downy pattern like no other. Just a fascinating species from start to finish!
