This has been a summer for Black-bellied Whistling Ducks, with this sighting at the Magnolia Cemetery pond.
They are another bird that is expanding its range northward and I’ve only seen them in this area the last two or three years.
This pair alternated their time between sitting in the trees and sitting in the water on a very hot SC day.

What beautiful ducks! You captured them well.
They sure are, with a gorgeous color scheme. Thank you, Cathy, and thanks for stopping by!
Love your last photo, Ellen!!
Thanks, Donna! It was interesting how they were just setting in the water—I wondered if it helped them keep cooler.
