Saturday, July 7, my wife Patricia and I spied 9 Black-bellied whistling ducks at the same Nash Pond where Mark saw his and others (including me) have reported on for several weeks now. Near dusk, the birds were in the shallow water against the far shoreline from the road in the southwest corner of the pond.

I saw one BBWD at this site at 12:45 today (Wed). This species was first reported there, by Tim Kavan, on May 16. Numerous birders have seen them since then.

I checked this site at 10:30 a.m. today (Mon) and saw no ducks. That could mean nothing, as the birds have had a history of coming and going here, in various numbers.

Black-bellied Whistling Ducks were observed, Sun. 7/1 at Nash Rd. Pond, Scott City as of 10:30 a.m.
There were only two seen. We checked the grain pile across the road - possibly others feeding there, none were found.
They were perched on a large stump-like tree in the water at the far end of the pond - bit difficult to see with naked eye.
Close views if you walk down the right side road, but be careful - there is a shoulder, but large trucks frequent.
