Whistlers on Wednesday

Just a pair of whistling ducks under the bird feeders. I know you like these silly birds. :)


 One often stands guard while the other eats. Then they switch off.

I love to watch birds and look for the watchman. I always listen for the signal too. Different ones to alert the ones eating and then watch as they switch off.
I am glad you notice too.

The male mallard watches the female eat, then he grabs a bite every now and then. I've never seen her stand watch while he eats.
