Black-billed Whistling Duck Landing at Grissom Wetlands, Viera, FL

While walking through the roads/trails in the Grissom Wetlands in Viera, FL I noticed some birds that I had not previously observed. Later I learned that they were Black-billed Whistling Ducks that are rarely seen in FL except in several areas. Fortunately got a photo of this one landing.
