[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
You're looking at a black-bellied whistling duck (Dendrocygna autumnalis), an unusual species among North American waterfowl. With its long legs, peculiar appearance, and odd habits, it was described by one early American ornithologist as "most un-duck-like."

This guy was perched on a railing along the visitors' walk at the Wakodahatchee Wetlands http://www.pbcgov.com/waterutilities/wakodahatchee/birds.htm
