Whistlers on Wednesday 26

More of these cuties eating from the old birdbath turned platform seed feeder.
Love those 'pink eraser' feet.


And cute little speckled pantaloons.



 There's always a few 'looky-loos' on the ground, wishing/waiting for their turn.
Look at that cute foot placed against the base of the feeder!

Stretch!




"Nanny-nanny-boo-boo! I'm up here and you're not!"

"And I'm cute, too!"

I think they're rather smug.

Margaret Adamson said...

Hi Tex Stunning photos of the ducks. They sure know they are beautiful. if you've got it, flaunt it@, I hear them say!! Do they breed there with you? Margaret

Stewart M said...

A combination of these and the indigo buntings would put pressure on the memory cards, no matter how big!

Nice birds.

Cheers and thanks for linking to WBW

I always love seeing your Whistlers!

DJan said...

They are adorable and they know it. Smug, too. I love the little speckled pantaloons. :-)

Janey and Co. said...

Wish I had some Whistlers out my window to watch!

Dicky Bird said...

"I'm king of the world" that is what I think the ones on the bird bath are thinking.

Arija said...

Can't get enough of these too cute critters. Make a duck like that out of clay and no-one will believe you.
For my money, you can post them over and over.

Elizabeth Grimes said...

They are colored so perfectly.

Julia said...

I like how they model their plumage in synchronization. They work together so you can get a view from every angle. Your captions add to the fun.
Great photographs.
Hugs,
JB

Pix Under the Oaks said...

They are cuties Tex! And entertaining!! And fashion coordinated with that PINKness!!!

Sandra said...

me thinks you might need a bigger feeder, like a horse trough? i like the pastels colors of feet and heads in the first couple of photos... and yes they do look smug

Magnolia Tea said...

Really great photos! I love their colors.

edenhills said...

Cute.

Primitive Stars said...

Such mucky eaters! I hope they give their beaks a good wash afterwards!

Jennifer A. Jilks said...

They are so much fun!
Cheers from Cottage Country!

Tina Fariss Barbour said...

I love the "pink eraser" description of their feet! They are beautiful--and so regal looking.

MTWaggin said...

I'm surprised they haven't petitioned for a larger feeding station!

MICKAN from QUEENS FIELD¸.•°`♥✿⊱╮ said...

Theresa. They know that you always have something nice to eat or drink for them.
So they have to pay something back and that must be that you can take nice photography on them :)

Lovely pics and yes, the feet is gordius ;)

I try now to take the verification away on my blog and hope it had become to be better than before.

Jan n Jer said...

LOL...love the last three shots! They are little hams for the camera!

Jo's World said...

Tex, tell them the welcome mat is out in Minniesnowda! We have 10,000 lakes they can paddle around in, we'll feed them, and enjoy very much telling people we ordered our Whistlers from Texas!

Cheers,
Jo

MICKAN from QUEENS FIELD¸.•°`♥✿⊱╮ said...

Thank you Theresa! I have done that but some of the old people don't know how to make a comment to me then. They tell other people to tell me that they can't make any comments.

I try this way and hopefully it will be better.
Usually the spam seek on big cat's or tigers or something like that on my blog. And I have try change them also but they find it.

With a little bit of luck ...

Digi-Irma said...

Great photos of the whistlers.
Nice that they are, on the drinking and feeding bowl.
Regards, Irma

Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

The original daffy duck, they always bring a smile to me.

Jill said...

So dang cute! Always a party at your place!

A fine series of these beautiful ducks. I like how your series shows how active the ducks are in getting a spot at the bird bath.

Grandma Barb's This and That said...

Pink eraser feet and speckled pantaloons! Love it!

Laura. M said...

Some are impatient to climb ... I liked this story :))
A kiss.

Mandy Southgate said...

What a lovely set of photos! I love that each one is unique, as are these darling birds themselves. Very nice.

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Theresa,
Funny that my first thought also was about those cute PINK feet...
Hugs,
Mariette

Kerry said...

They look sooo happy:) I love these colorful ducks of yours & wish they would make that little bit of effort to fly here to Oregon and visit us. We have lots of water, why don't they do that?

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

You just can't go wrong with these guys -- they have a good reason to be smug. Gosh they're so cute even the butt-shots are pretty!

Stephen Hayes said...

They probably make a mess, but they sure are cute.

Debby@Just Breathe said...

They are so darn cute....great shots!

They're so cute - and those little pink duck feet are a little surprising.

MarkD60 said...

Gotta love those pink beaks!

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

Pink eraser feet and smug ducks. Gotta love it.

Michaele said...

There is just no cuter duck face out there. The bird feeder really puts their size into perspective.

Our Neck of the Woods said...

Oh my gosh, they are just so cute. From the pink feet to the "speckled pantaloons" :)

Łucja-Maria said...

Tex, I am very glad that you show your goose.
I am delighted with them.
Great pictures.

Robin Lamb said...

Awe they are cute aren't they? :)

Carletta said...

Whistlers on Wednesday is always a smile from ear to ear post! :)

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

Your captions make me LOL and your photos make me smile :-)

Betsy Adams said...

I laughed at your comment from the one above looking down at the others... ha ha ... AND the one below with his foot on the base of the feeder looking up ---looks like he wants to just climb up that feeder. ha

Cute post. Glad you checked out my birdie blog post today. I loved doing it.

Hugs,
Betsy

Ron said...

If they keep eating like that they're going to be fat little ducks!

Gail Dixon (La.Belle) said...

Oh my goodness, too cute! What a great post to come back to after my vacation. Loved your captions of the "eraser feet" and "speckled pantaloons". It amazes me how respectful birds are in taking turns at the feeder. Unless starlings are involved. :/

FOREST SNAPPER said...

I think its a case of first come first served,

Candy C. said...

"Nanny-nanny-boo-boo!!" ROTFL!!

I like the idea of using the bird bath as a feeder! Smarty!

Patty Woodland said...

If nothing else, they are happy!

Karen said...

Oh aren't they lovely. Great shots too.

Debbie said...

hehe, pantaloons, i have never seen them before!!

they sure do make themselves right at home!!

Paula said...

I think you have those Whistlers figured out.

DeniseinVA said...

Oh wow, I think you are slowly making me a convert to considering these cute ducks one of my favorites. Your photos are fantastic and I always remember seeing them at the zoo in San Diego and listening to them 'whistling'. Thank you for sharing them and continuously putting a smile on my face.

That is the first time I have seen their feet and it balances the colorful look of the beak! They are fun, beautiful birds.

I love how they sit together!

SquirrelQueen said...

They are all so cute event with their attitude. Love that little eraser foot on the bottom of the feeder.

Farm Girl said...

I always love seeing the different expressions on their faces and I do love pink feet.

Cheryl @ TFD said...

They are so dang cute! Love all the shots, but that one with his foot up on the feeder is something else!

orchid Miyako said...

Dearest Theresa,
Whistlers SO have colorful body and adorable to see, don't they♡♡♡
I enjoyed your caption a lot today as well. "speckled pantaloons", "lookie-loo" and other lovely expressions(*^_^*)
"The cute foot placed against the base of the feeder" gave me warm smile♬♬♬

Sending you lots of love and hugs from Japan to my American photographer friend, xoxo Miyako*

Nancy @ A Rural Journal said...

Maybe a drive-thru would help to accommodate more birds. :)

Kerri said...

Oh I Just love those Pink Feet!!

Tina C said...

Laughing at Nancy's comment about the drive thru! I think she might be on to something!
They are so adorable- I just love seeing your photos of these sillies.

Lynne said...

Best Whistler photos . . . EVA' . . .

Brian King said...

I still laugh at them perching on anything and everything! I think "perch" should have been in their name in some form or fashion!

Denise at Autumn Sky said...

I will say it again, I just stinkin' LOVE these ducks.

McGuffy Ann said...

They really are cute...and perhaps a bit smug! :)

Breathtaking said...

These are fantastic captures of the Whistlers Theresa,.. they really are the most attractive birds seen close up like this.

Hilary said...

They really are adorable. I love the captions you've given them.

Midmarsh John said...

Looks like they are playing King of the Castle.

Chris Rohrer said...

Now this would be a cool painting!!!

Jen said...

I don't think I've ever seen whistlers eating from a feeder. I'm more than a little jealous that you've got so many cool birds running around your place.

Ann, Chen Jie Xue 陈洁雪 said...

" I am the kings of the castle, you lookylook guys will have to wait."

Barbara said...

Oh, they are cuties!

Beth Niquette said...

Ha! I think they do look a bit smug. I laughed and laughed over these pictures. Thank you for sharing them. They're just so droll.

Liz said...

Haha!! So darn cute!! Love your Whistlers!!

bon bon said...

that's the first i'm noticing their "speckled pantaloons." there's no "end" to their cuteness! ;)

Margie said...

This may be your cutest batch of the whistler cuties yet! But I think I always say that don't I? i surely hope you decide to draw one of these for a give-away. Pretty please with a whistler on top?

barbara l. hale said...

Yay! More whistlers! Made my day!!

Margaret said...

..."For all the world (birdfeeder included) is a stage" !

Helma said...

It remains a great fun sight to see down. These geese on the crib They feel quite at home :-)

Rose said...

The one with the foot on the base of the feeder looks like he is threatening to push the whole thing over if they don't let him up there'1

pattisjarrett said...

Great shots of pink eraser feet and pantaloons! :)

Pat Tillett said...

HA! You can keep posting photos of these guys forever and I won't complain. Love them!
