Whistle while you work...

Doesn't it look like this black-bellied whistling duck is doing the "Hi Ho; Hi Ho...It's off to work we go!" march from the Seven Dwarfs?  And I think he's smiling too.
"He's always showing off..."

Man, I'd love to be a duck. They got it made. Everybody would think I was cute. I'd get to fly around and swim all day. If the weather got hot, I'd fly north. If it got cold, I'm headed south to the runaround ranch for a foto shoot. Life would be gooood....

Joe said...

I really like these ducks and it does look like he's smiling :).

I think he's on a mission. He's spy duck. The others are suspicious ;-)

Deb said...

I love it....now that song is in my head as I get ready to go to work....

Jan n Jer said...

They are so cute...do they really whistle???

Sandra said...

that duck is definitely marching to his own beat... to funny and I wish I could hear him whistle as he goes. great shots, both of these

Texan said...

He looks rather determined, there must be a bug involved some way LOL. I wonder why we don't have those ducks at our place given we are pretty much in the same area? They sure are pretty.

Sweet! Terrific Black-bellied Whistling Duck photos! I've seen them on the west coast of Florida and they do indeed whistle while they work. Very cute!

Judy said...

He does look like he's smiling...I can't recall ever seeing one of these ducks before. I love their brown color.

That first picture he looks kind of goofy walking, but I suppose if I had big webbed feet I would look so too.
