The White-winged Duck is a large species of duck native to parts of Southeast Asia. They have mostly dark bodies with a contrasting white head and neck. The namesake white wing-patches can be best seen in flight.
White-winged Ducks generally feed by dabbling. They dine on aquatic vegetation as well as small animals like snails or small fish. These somewhat secretive birds have nocturnal tendencies and usually feed at night.
White-winged Ducks face population threats. Habitat loss has led to fragmentation of the population, which further threatens the species.
