Hello dear friends!
I found this duck in our little zoo.I don´t know its ID and I only have somme indications by Wikipedia:

The duck is a bird that belongs to the family in which they operate Anseridae sub-families Dendrocygninae, Anatinae, or Merginae Oxyurinae original South American birds are generally smaller than anserídeos (geese and swans) and can be found both in water fresh and sea.

Nice week to everybody!
All my love,

PS:this bird was kindly identified by Pauly (PaulLess)as Whistlings Fulvous Ducks.Many thanks Pauly!

The Fulvous whistling duck Actually Is More Closely related to geese than to ducks. Fulvous whistling ducks have long legs and necks, Which leads to a distinct profile When flying. When seen standing, They look more like than duck-goose-like. Male and female Fulvous whistling ducks look alike, the head, chest and belly are tawny-brown and the wings and back are darker brown. They have a silvery Border Between the belly and wings formed by white tipped feathers and a blue-gray bill.Wikipedia
