Cuban Tree Duck

aka Black-billed Whistling Duck, West Indian Tree Duck

Cuban Tree Ducks

These ducks are confined to the West Indies.

Their activity is mostly nocturnal. They spend the day hidden in swampy areas, flying out at night to feed on fruit in treetops. They are adept at perching in trees. Unlike many ducks, they spend little time on the water.
