Blk-Bellied Whistler Singles

Are you tired of these guys yet?  Well, sorry, you'll just have to endure a few more shots of them. 










We've watched them now for 8 springs/summers and I still find them fascinating, entertaining, quirky, beautiful, and so photogenic...

Sharon said...

I think Mother Nature was feeling her "inner child" when she colored these ducks, you know? They are very pretty, but not any of the expected colors, LOL! But then, how many are?

sharon said...

The color on these guys is incredible. I esp. love their beaks.

Farm Girl said...

I did not know before that they had such orange beaks. I like your pictures of them so keep them coming.

How in the world could anyone ever be tired of seeing these BEAUTIES of nature?! WHOA, the are so stunning. Makes me want to get on the road and head to your house! Camp out on those acres. What kind of ducks are these? Did I miss reading it somewhere? NICE, love your photography, your posts, your comments, you are incredible.

I'll not grow tired of looking at those quackers as they are so different from what we have here in northern Calif. I like the shot of the one standing on the stump.

Woody said...

How could you tire of those faces?

Louise said...

I never, ever, would get tired of these guys. Such photogenic little duckies. They're built something like domestic ducks. I wonder if those ducks are descended from these?

Tricia said...

They're all the above! =)

Hi Texwisgirl, I love these pictures, especially that last one where the duck is looking at the camera. Have an excellent day today!

I really like the coloring on these. They also seem to be interested in what's going on around them, if we could only know their thoughts.
