Rosybill Pochard (Netta peposaca) male.
The Rosy-billed Pochard, alternatively named Rosybill, or Rosybill Pochard (Netta peposaca) is a duck with a distinctive red bill on males and a slate-colored bill on females. Though classified as a diving duck, this pochard feeds more like a dabbling duck.
The species name peposaca is derived from a Guaraní word for "showy wings", referring to the broad white stripe that is only visible with stretched out wings.
The Rosy-billed Pochard is endemic to South America. It is found in Argentina, central Chile, Paraguay, Uruguay and southern Brazil.
