ok, i have to ask ... can they whistle is that why they are called whistlers? i can't be the only one who has asked this question before? ha. ha!! enjoy your Wednesday. (:

Mike said...

Well, I see them pecking but not Pekin. A couple Aflac wanna-bes, maybe.

Ellie said...

I never get tired of pics these ducks.
I'm glad Elizabeth asked that question - saved me from doing it :))

I thought the wood ducks were bigger, but they're about the same size as the whistlers. Interesting! They're quite the flock together. :)

Dearest Theresa,
Black-bellied whistling Duck and Wood Duck!!! They sure look quite different from the ones we can see here. Not the colors, their necks look a bit longer.

Red said...

Birds pictures are hard to take when they're on the ground. Nevertheless you show off some very attractive birds.

Sally said...

Yay! I always love these. :)

Jo's World said...

Do you suppose the wood ducks think the whistlers are odd looking? And the whistlers think the wood ducks are very strange appearing??? But they both try to be kind to each other out of sympathy!!

I'm gonna come down there and steal a few of these whistlers. I'm sure they'd like it here in Oregon, and I would be very nice to them.

Farm Girl said...

haha Aflac is so funny. I could see him saying that. They are so pretty and are they all gone now or did they spend the summer?

Gail Dixon (Louisiana Belle) said...

Haha, on the Aflac description. Love your whistlers. They are so colorful and animated.

Inger said...

I wish I could have a few of them too. But no water, so ducks would not be happy here.

Sylvia K said...

Oh, yes!! AFLAC!!! What a great giggle to start my day!

barbara l. hale said...

I love those jolly little dudes!

With their unique look they would make most excellent AFLAC spokemodels!

They had to replace the duck's voice, they might as well upgrade the duck to one of these!
