The Wandering Whistling-Duck (Dendrocygna arcuata) is natural to Indonesia, the Philippines, New Guinea, Bismarck Islands and northern Australia. Its distribution also includes the islands between these locations.
During the dry season, on northern Australia, this whistling-duck congregates in flocks that may count up to two thousand individuals. Occasionally other species of whistling-ducks join these flocks. As the rainy season starts, they scatter to nest.
The nest is done on the ground. The clutch is six to fifteen eggs. Incubation takes from 28 to 30 days.
The sexes are similar except that the males are slightly larger. The length of the adults is 40 to 45 cm (16 to 17 1/2 inches). The weight is about 750 grams (over 1 1/2 pounds).
The Wandering Whistling-Duck in Spanish is called “Yaguasa Errante”.
