Large, dark chestnut-colored duck found primarily in sheltered fresh and brackish waters in well-wooded areas. In flight, bright blue upperwings are distinctive and stand out even along shaded creeks and streams. Widespread in the Afrotropical lowlands. Primary calls consist of hollow “ko-ko-ko” type quacking and occasionally wheezy whistles.
