Indian Spot-billed Duck

The Indian Spot-billed Duck, also known as Spot-billed Duck, is a resident in India. The Spotbill Duck is classified in to three subspecies – the Indian Spot-billed Duck, Eastern Spot-billed Duck and Burmese Spot-billed Duck. The name comes from the red spots at the base of their yellow-tipped black bills, which the females of the species lack. These ducks are “dabbling ducks” meaning that they do not dive for their meals but instead stick their heads underwater with their tails in the air to forage.
