Whistlers on Wednesday II

Just another photo load of my favorite, tree-sitting, black-bellied whistling ducks.













It is really hard not to overload you with photos of these guys. They're such quirky characters and very entertaining.

I love these guys!! I never get tired of seeing their cute, animated, cartoonish faces! I think I'm first this morning!! Be still my heart! I better quit writing before someone beats me!

Linda said...

I never get tired of seeing them either! They are so pretty...

Jill said...

They are entertaining! I say...keep 'em coming. Look like Larry,Moe and Curly today. Then Shep joins them.

Arija said...

They certainly are great companions on the farm for you.
I know the feeling of snapping yourself silly at a bird or two.

Jeevan said...

Wonderful coverage! That's pretty how few balance on one feet on the branches.

Martie said...

I did not know those ducks roosted. Most ducks don't or very rarely do.

Bob Bushell said...

They look the part of whistlers in the tree, it's funny to see them.

Tanya said...

i love these little guys!

Gail said...

They are beautiful. I've never seen that kind but we don't get many ducks around here.

Betty Roan said...

They are entertaining, and educational. I worked on my math skills. 4-2=2, 2+1=3, 3+1=4, 4-3=1 and 1+2=3. I'm getting good at this.

Kerin said...

Cool!
I've never seen ducks like that before.
I'll have to ask my sweetie-pie if he's seen them before.

Have a good one.

Daryl Edelstein said...

Funny to see ducks in a tree ..

Buttons said...

Oh how I wish for a tree filled of Whistling ducks in my back yard. They are the cutest things. :) B

7th pic down... Picture Philly fans at an Eagles game... "Hey look at that guy! Tell me he's NOT wearing a Dallas jersey!?!?!". 9th pick down... "Do you see any more?":@)

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

I don't think you could overload me. Ha ha, they are so funny up on that wood!

DJan said...

Always bring a smile to my face. And to think I didn't even know about them before I started following you!

Sandra said...

they are so darn cute. do they make a lot of noise? or do they mostly just sit in the trees.

Madge Bloom said...

Interesting shots... I don't think I've ever seen ducks in trees...

Ruth's Photo Blog said...

I think I am in love with these ducks. Bring on the pictures. Got to love those pink legs and feet.

Jan n Jer said...

I guess you have permanent guests! They are very entertaining!

grammie g said...

Love those Whistling Ducks! They seem to have so much personality. Great photographs!

Rose said...

They look like they are wondering how to get down....

ShySongbird said...

Never, ever too many for me :-) It's something to do with those comical, slightly too long pale pink legs, I'm sure it is!

Linda said...

"Quirky" seems to be a fitting word to describe these birds. I think Indiana needs to look into importing them into our area. :)

Texan said...

I love these ducks :O)

Grandma Barb's This and That said...

I think they like posing for you.

Inger said...

I never knew these birds existed and now I can't get enough of them. Thank you for starting my day out right, with a smile!

Marissa @Life On Our Mountain said...

They're awesome. It would be nice to see a video clip of them *hint-hint*

Today is my brother's birthday.

Next time you see them, ask them if they would like to detour up to Massachusetts for a few weeks so I can enjoy them in person. Love these ducks! Keep on posting them..they make me smile.

Carla said...

The ones at our old house use to land on the power lines. It was funny watching them trying to balance on a wire with web feet but they did it.

Ellie said...

They look very cute - I love their pink legs.

Candy C. said...

No Whistler overload here!! :)

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Love,
Mariette

They really are so unusual and colorful. How fortunate you are they have taken up residence at your ranch. :)

A Quiet Corner said...

I'd be sitting there all day watching them!...:)JP

They always make me smile!

Doug Hickok said...

These colorful tree ducks are priceless! One of my all time favorite places to birdwatch is Texas :^)

Michelle said...

Green with envy...that's what I am. I love these!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You must go to bed smiling about what you'll see on your ranch in the morning. :)

Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

I don't think you CAN overload us with these cuties!! They are so darn photogenic! Just beautiful.

wildlifewatcher said...

Hi TexWisGirl, I have never seen any. They are amazingly cute! Such pink feet. They really do have personality plus. Have a wonderful day tomorrow!

Michaele said...

Well, if I roll it fast, it looks just like a movie : ) These guys are as much a part of the ranch as you are, I think.

These are beautiful ducks. I have to say, I'm a little envious of the avian creatures around your place. They are gorgeous and I love to look at them. Thanks for the post.

Jo's World said...

Keep 'em coming! Can't get enough of these characters.

Jo, Stella and Zkhat

Felicity said...

I couldn't help it, as soon as I started to slide through these images, I instantly saw speech bubbles coming from their beaks....can you imagine the conversations?

Happy day!

Love to see your cute whistlers.

Susan said...

Can never have too much of them. Love the one-legged stand :D)

Stewart M said...

Hi there - is it a "trick of the light" or does the duck in the last but one picture have really long legs?

Cheers - Stewart M - Australia

Ann said...

tree climbing and long legged ducks, a first for me.

Mary Howell Cromer said...

Hmmmm, I just left a comment saying these look like watercolours, they are so lovely and after sending, it said something went wrong with connections...will try again. Just delete, if the other one got through.

georgettesullins said...

They climb trees too?

Gail Dixon (Louisiana Belle) said...

Look at them posing on that tree limb for you! They are indeed entertaining little characters. Don't think I've ever seen ducks balancing on tree limbs before. Cute!

Sandy said...

I never tire of these guys. I don't think I have ever seen ducks in trees. They truly are marked beautifully.

pattisjarrett said...

And I always have to laugh when I see them standing on a tree branch! It never gets old.

Laura Delegal - Leroy Photography said...

Whistling Ducks! They are gorgeous. I love the blue on the side of their heads. I sure wish I could hear what they sound like. Have a great weekend.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

How did I miss this earlier. Can't get too much of these guys.

Catherine said...

Cute!
xo Catherine

Anna Simpson said...

We get these black-bellied whistling ducks here in the UK but unfortunately they're all captive ones. I would love to be to see them in the wild.

I've thoroughly enjoyed looking through your blog and I will be back again.

Keep up the good work.

Marie said...

They don't know, of course, how cute they are! I never get tired of looking at them! Just curious, do they make a whistling sound?

bon bon said...

always on hand for comic relief.
:o)

subbu said...
