The White-faced Whistling Duck is distributed in Africa south of the Sahara and in most of tropical and sub-tropical South America. See the distribution map at Birdlife International. It does not seem to be a long distance migrant and it is a monotypic species so I wonder how it spread from one continent to the other.
