Fulvous Whistling-Duck walking in sand
I encountered this Fulvous Whistling-Duck strolling in the sand. This duck is large with long legs and resembles a goose. They forage for seeds of fresh grass and rice at night so it was startling to find this one walking in the sand in midday. I caught him mid step with one enormous foot in the air and I have to wonder:

Is the sand too hot?
Is he practicing to become a drum major?
Is he just strutting?
Is he marching to a different drummer?
