They do whistle! I have wondered about that. Thank you for the sounds. Delightful!
Morning Tex I LOVE the video I have never heard these beautiful birds before. Now when I see the awesome photos of them lined up on a tree branch I can imagine the sound. Tank you. B
The Whistler Family! Cool hearing them Tex!
They really do whistle!
Beautiful, thanks for the Video! Nice dayCrissi
Just love those guys
These guys certainly provide you with lots of entertainment!
Perfect limb for perfect perching! I like my Whistlers!
Off I go to listen . . .
Your whistler ducks are nice to watch and the sounds seems to come from smaller birds. Very interesting.Happy Spring.JB
Gorgeous pictures !!!!! Have a wonderful day
Sitting ducks LOL! Brilliant Tex. Have a wonderful Wednesday.Best wishes Molly
As you fully are aware of, being born and raised in Wisconsin; sitting here in my kitchen, snow covered yard, first day of Spring....I so enjoyed listening to your video!! Blessings from Ringle, WI.
thanks for the whistles, and I liked viewing live what you see each day. the ducks on the limb look like they may be contemplating line dancing.
wat een prachtig gezicht zo allemaal op de boomtak.
Now I know why they are called whistling ducks! They are not only cute and goofy looking, but loud, too! :-)
i see you've got your whistlers all in a row, T!
How fun that they have returned :-)
Morning, Thanks Tex, you made my day, love to see the Ducks and hear their whistle, how fun was that....beautiful pictures, Spring Blessings Francine.
Very good post...... i like these birds.Greetings, joop
These are the neatest ducks!! love their coloring and long legs and coral duck bills! I can't listen to your clip here at school-- will have to checkit out when I get home tonight!! Love the photos!
I've definitely never seen ducks sitting on a limb - I'm going to have to come back for a listen (when I'm not at work...)
The video proves it. Ducks whistle.
Now this is one of my fav. pics.If I was a writer for AFLAC I would introduce one of these whistlers to their AFLAC duck.
Pięknie wyglądają stojąc obok siebie na gałęzi nad stawem. Pozdrawiam.Look beautiful standing next to each other on a branch above the pond. Yours.
I seriously could listen to birds all the time. Outside my bedroom window in the mornings I usually hear doves, pigeons, and for some reason this area is getting the big black crows. We've never had them here. Perhaps it's just temporary. So they are fun to listen to now. I used to hear a mockingbird out there going through all of his sounds - one of which was a telephone ringing. :)
Thank you for the video! I hadn't been able to get the audio link that you provided before to work, so it was neat to hear what you hear on the video. That's just amazing. Not the sound I would have expected from them. They apparently talk to each other as they fly, too...like geese do.
I truly love these guys :)
Hi Teresa...I love these guy's they sure like your place!!The limb shot is just great,and thanks for the sound affects ; )Grace
Great pictures of the gorgeous Whistlers... Bet they know it is Wednesday --when you are out there taking their photos.. haHugs,Betsy
Lookie there, all lined up. Almost like they are waiting for lunch! LOL
They look SO different from the ducks here in Seattle. Our ducks are mallards and the feathery brown kind, or the white. You have such a variety!
Dang, you get so many cool birds at your place.
They are goofy, I think that's what so endearing about them. They sure don't sound like ducks.
They make me smile...
You sure have your ducks in a row :) Sorry I couldn't resist!!Great captures .... I really want to see one of these one day!!
Oh drat, the video wouldn't load for me, but I enjoyed the photos.
Hello TexWisGirl - beautiful pictures showing some beautiful ducks ..... nice to hear it in your video.Outside my window sits there and pigeons coo - the birds have begun to sing / whistle and build nests ...... so spring is coming soon. Wishing you a great Wednesday :) Hanne Bente
I love those birds sitting on the tree like that. And their whistling is like music to my ears.
Happy and eerie all at the same time
The first 3 pictures made me think of the shooting gallery at a carnival or circus midway. "Step right up folks.."
Really enjoyed hearing the Whistlers and they are very photogenic. That is quite an interesting wood "sculpture" you have in the pond too.
Registos como este encantam qualquer apreciador da fotografia pela sua enorme beleza.Parabéns pelo magnifico trabalho e apresentação.ag
Wonderful pictures, I like the colors and the softness of the colors of the plumage on those ducks! Excellent photos!
A fine series of this pretty bird. I enjoyed getting to hear their whistle. Fine post.
Great pictures of the ducks! They look a very strange duck to an English eye!
I adore those damn ducks! And now I understand why they are called Whistlers.
I will listen to the video later on the computer, not showing up on the iPad. They are pretty to look at and their beaks is a lovely color.
I really like this series of photos. Lovely ducks!!
Quite the group you've got there!
Wow! I didn't realize there were that many of them there at one time! That's a lot of whistlers!
A whole clothes line of the beggars, haha!
I am unfamiliar this species of ducks.With us there is no such.I love your movie.Regards.
Colorful buggers, aren't they!! Are they having a convention??
Following adorable! Each is unique in composition!
goodness - they can balance on that limb with those large clown shoe feet! they be gymnasts!
Must have been a very important business meeting, lol !
Handsome pics, esp the final 2!Aloha
Love the ducks! Sure are a lot of them.
T, what a great song! These guys really crack me up! They sure like to sit in a row!
You have the coolest birds there. I love the video!Lindahttp://coloradofarmlife.wordpress.com http://deltacountyhistoricalsociety.wordpress.com
Today many have come to see you ... is because you treat them well :))a kiss.
I played the video and the dogs came running in all concerned. :) The way these whistlers are arranged on the curved limb is so awesome. I was so excited to see them at the lake last weekend, but they wouldn't come out into the light so I gave up.
They look so silly all lined up on that branch.
Oh, you should have seen Samson! He came flying in here, climbed up in my lap and tried to get into the computer when he heard the ducks. What great birds, you are so lucky to have them stop by your place. Love them and your pictures.
I came back to listen to the birds. That was great!
Great pics and video! They sort of sounded like squeakers out of a dog toy at times!! :)
A good title, aren't they beautiful.
Great shots! Love them all perched together on the limb.
I do believe I can hear their thoughts- "We are so lucky to be us!"
I loved hearing them in the video. They are so unducklike.
oh my, what a beautiful whistle they have!!but will i be able to sleep through that, when i come to live on the deck?? ;)))you live in heaven, what a gorgeous, wonderful place!!
You know I am just crazy for these funny looking ducks. Unfortunately I cannot hear the video but I would rather think of them quacking anyway.Cheers and hugs,Jo
I loved watching your video! I heard something making a different noise in the background a couple times - what was that?
I loved the video. Those ducks always make me so happy. So glad they are back.
It's a Whistler partaaay! :)
little squeakers!nice shots. - The Equestrian Vagabond
Wonderful photos of those lovely ducks! The last one looks like a painting. My computer is so slow right now so I couldnt see your video with their sounds, but I will check it out later :)
Beautiful photos and video Tex!I enjoyed seeing and hearing those fantastic birds!Thank you for sharing!Dimi..
My favourites in your pond. How great you made a video....didint think they would sound like that
I love these birdies, and how nicely they are lined up almost as if they're whistling in choir. Enjoy your day
I love how they come in "flocks".
They are as sweet as can be.
Love these pics and the video. My cats were in the room and heard the video and went nuts!
Had to pin these cuties! Thanks for including the video- I loved listening to them and the pups did, too.So far, the little skirl is recovering but hasn't been reunited with it's mama.
enjoyed the video clip also - you can pick up all the sounds without any traffic in the background; that's a big plus. The ducks just have it made and made for a great photo opportunity; lovely!
¸. • °º° ✿✿ ·.Super imagens... amei... muita doçura para fotografar.Boa continuação da semana!Beijinhos.Brasilº° ✿ ·.✿✿¸.•♪
Goofy is right. I love their silly selves! :)
As always, I love the Whistlers. Really love the pictures of them sitting on the limb and of course, the video is great!
Oh wow, that's a lot of Whistlers. I wish we had them here, they are so darn cute! Great shots!
Here's my first thought when I saw your title... "let's see what these nuts are up to now". Love 'em:@)
I'm impressed with the whistlers and I'm really impressed with the lush green grass.
for ducks they look somewhat sheepish to me
They are such pretty ducks!
Wow how fun is that??? They really are "Whistlers" !! Love those duckies.
I see you have your ducks all in a row!!!
Holy moose poops...they are whistlers!...:)JP
Oh I love the whistling- they are so cute.
I want one.. or two. Love the ducks.
They do have a neat whistle.Thanks for sharing.Felicia
I love those top three shots with them sitting on the limb.
in my next life I want to be a goofy limb sitting duck! Thanks for the sound bites, sounds like spring in Texas!!
You're fortunate to have these beautifully colored ducks around you.
They're actually quite loud! I love these whistling ducks of yours & have never seen them outside of your blog. They look like musical notes all perched on that branch.
They're back! I just love seeing these guys. I would love to see them in the wild instead of in the aviary like we have here.
Gee they look funny sitting on that branch, up close they are quite attractive though, great shots.
I wonder they recognize each other !
DANG! Ha. It's noisy in your neck of the woods! And I adore the first few photos... it looks like a living sculpture.
Always a Kodak moment when the Whistling Ducks ar around!!
Oh my gosh there are so many of them! Loved the video, I would never ever leave your place, so peaceful and beautiful!
That is a lot of cute ducks. :)xo Catherine
They look so cute all lined up on that limb. Great shots my friend. Hugs~
They aways look so outstanding. Hope I hear one whistle in person someday. No not one, a whole bunch.
The Wednesday Whistlers are sounding good!Thanks for sharing that.
How do they tell one from the other? They all look alike! The all sound alike, too!
They are so funny on that limb! And thanks for recording their song! That was neat to hear.
It is truly amazing how these sounds can transport me back to my childhood. Such a nice post! :)
Those are really striking looking ducks! I played the video and my cat, Maggie came rushing over looking for the 'prey'. Ha ha! Very unusual sounds for a duck! So wonderful to see these right outside your window! xx
They are so beautiful!
I can listen to the video since I'm on an ipad now, but that's some chorus line!!
they are just so darn cute! they make me smile when i see them! happy ducks!
Love the "line". You get the BEST photo's.xoxo
I really love these red billed ducks of yours.
Some strange ducks lined up there all right...
Well at least you have all of your ducks in a row! :~)
Are the geese or ducks? In the water on the perch I find very beautiful! The geese or ducks in the grass have beautiful colors.
So cool to hear them! That's quite alot of Whistlers in your pond. Wow!
Thanks for the sound - cool! LOL, they sure are cute ducks.
Love those little guys but they sure are noisy critters!
I love the limb sitters, those are really fun shots and those ducks are so cute. Funny word to use for a duck but they are... cute!
Thanks for the video. What a great start to my day! Very pleasing cacophony!
They truly are the cutest damned things! I want one as a pet, LOL!
I love the pictures of them all lined up on the limb and thanks for the sound effects, how cool!! :)
Oh, the video was wonderful! Just love it! Yeah I "get" your "jealousy" cause that's the way I feel about all the birds and critters you see that we don't. it would be neat to trade places for just a couple of days :)
Love your Whistlers!
I enjoyed the close-up photos and was delighted to hear the sound at full volume. Sunrises and bird songs are the best in early mornings!
thanks for the video, theresa.it was awesome. so are your photos!!
really enjoyed the video...i have never heard these adorable birds before.
nice to see you got your ducks in a row :)
Very beautiful birds and photos. :)
Great sound effect video! That big body on those itty bitty legs standing on a branch still gets to me. :)
What a peaceful sound--can you hear from your deck, porch? Nice. Great markings--kind of dandys, aren't they? Could tell for sure, but are some of them standing on one leg on the limb?
Dearest Theresa,Wow, they DO whistle and sounds really peaceful♬♬♬ I feel like my upset stomach got a bit better(^^;)Enjoyed the beautiful pictures and sound very much after the rice-porridge lunch, hehe. Sorry for the belated comment.Sending you lots of love and hugs from Japan to my American photographer friend, xoxo Miyako*
Love them & how they gather! And the sound, great!
They're back!!! You know, I have yet to find these birds in Tucson....or around Tucson. Some of the habitat was destroyed south of the city and the birds never returned. I'm hoping to find them somewhere in AZ. I'm glad you have habitat that allows them to hang out. Sassy ducks though!
They remind me of vultures all lined up like that! Not nearly as imposing, though. :-) They certainly don't sound like any ducks I've ever heard! Pretty cool!
The funny thing is it's almost like someone told them to line up for their picture to be taken - - - like for the school yearbook!
omg, there are so many! you are blessed in that they return to your pond each year.
