Mottled ducks or Florida Mallard's are found from the Southern points of Florida up to about Ocala. There are Plenty at MINWR.
Black Belly Whistling Ducks have found quite a niche here in Florida, breeding populations are found in almost every county in Central Florida.
There is a large population of near 300 that inhabit the areas around Emeralda Marsh. the first signs of hunting there they high tail out of the WMA and head for the residents yards around Lake Griffin where they are corn fed year round.
