Yellow-billed Duck

Yellow-billed Duck Anas undulata
Ethiopia
January 2014

     Yellow-billed Duck must surely be one of the most descriptively named ducks of all. We saw this species in several locations in Ethiopia and it is, in fact, widespread through southern and eastern Africa.

  3. I had to look that one up David A local African name seems to be "geelbekeend". Think I prefer Yellow-billed Duck as much more descriptive. Nice pictures to show that very distinctive bill.

  5. Hi David,
    Sorry I've been quite busy these days so I couldn't blog much... again!
    I think I have never seen this duck before!
    Dullish in color but lovely feather pattern.
    Great pics well in focus and I love N°2, with all these yellow beaks... They really stand out! LOL!
