Beautiful series of photographsnice dayCrissi
So, they've made it and whistled off to their next stop in life.
What? Vanished? Without a word to the photography crew?
Charming and endearing whistlers !
Good morning Tex!!Oh,yes!!It's the whistlers day!!Adorable ducks!!Lovely pictures!!Dimi...
Well, you certainly made good use of their presence while they were there visiting you!
Wonderful photos! They're very cute.
What fun to watch this family grow! They certainly are funny! Now we all have a bigger appreciation and will see ducks in general with new eyes! Thanks for sharing!
Really wonderful series of photos. I really like.
I love seeing your Whistler family. Thank you for sharing all these cute moments.
Gotta figure out which one tasted best! Hopefully they all just headed on down the road:@)
They were so comical we will miss them. Have a wonderful Wednesday.Best wishes Molly
They are lovely...... good photographed Theresa
They are just lovely! I can handle many of them :)
I'm glad that you got to take all these photos of them as well.
Yes, good thing you took these adorable pictures. I like the one with his head crooked to the side - "what are you doing?"
Wonderful family. They are so sweet.Greetings
adore these ducks!
Dearest Theresa,Especially those two frontal face photos are precious! They take off so suddenly and it leaves a void...Hugs,Mariette
Love their soft expressive eyes!!! Great photos!
Gone. Well good for them. A happy story you have shared.
What a wonderful series of photos! The juvenile is almost as big as his parent.I wonder if some of this brood will be back next year? I hope so.
Loved all the pictures, handled it quite nicely.....Blessings Francine.
He's just the cutest thing. I'm glad you introduced me to these guys, and I cannot even imagine how much you must miss them... Like you said, "Kids!" :-)
Just like human children, they have to experience everything. And it looks like the adults still have a little of that child-like attitude, too, getting right into the water platter with the kid. Great series. I'm so glad the youngsters, though hatched late in the season, reached maturity in time to migrate.
I swear these duckies have SO MUCH personality! You have great "memory" shots of them, and thank you for sharing them with us.
I'm sure they will return next year. All grown up and ready to raise a family of their own.
Aww, I'm glad that you saw them before they left on their their vacations. I've noticed that the juvenile's beak is getting darker. Thanks for sharing these pictures with us,Hugs,JB
I see your neck of the woods is getting some cold temps. Stay warm!
Such a cutie the young one is!! I do so love your whistlers. Keep 'em coming.
He is so cute. What fun it must be just watching those Whistlers.
He is so cute and definitely very very photogenic. :)
Yes! I can handle more pictures!! Gone. Dang. Hope they have a happy life and a good migration. He looks kinda serious in those shots.
I can never get enough of them! Great. :)
He's a curious one! Great shots, I'm glad you took a lot, because once they are gone...they are gone!
Beautiful, indeed! I don't suppose they're actually cuddly, huh. But they sure look so.
Finally went South did they?
Aw I'm happy you caught these photos too. Loved this series an their story. Sounds like they were all big enough to head towards warmer weather. Yay I love happy endings :)
A fascinating series of this "advanced" duck. He certainly has advanced behavior. He's a born leader it appears.
I'm glad you got all the photos you did! Such a handsome little young man he is! I think he liked posing for you!!
They certainly look like they keep things interesting!
Gone? It must be somewhat lonely are the ranch yard this past month.
Beautiful photos of the whistlers.
Your whistlers must be fascinating to watch. Nice series of shots Theresa.Happy whistler Wednesday :)
your handsome feathered dude looks like her learned all the tricks of the trade with no problem. sorry they have left for warmer climates...
these are so amusing! wonderful shots and I so love that 6th shot, his look cracked me up.
He does look self assured in those first photographs. I'm gonna miss this little family and I'm sure you will as well.
such cute ducks! wonderful series of photos!
Whilst whistlers on Wednesday, they are funny.
Such a teenager!What a happy ending, but I'll be willing to bet you'll see the whole lot of them back next spring!
Gorgeous series of my favorite bird!
These are great shots of him exploring his world! I've so enjoyed following along with this family. You must miss them.
The contrast in their beak color is pretty amazing. Good to see they have grown to their adult size.
Never get tired of pictures of these critters. Gonna miss them for a while.
Oh, I hate it when a favorite photography subject just disappears overnight. How rude. :) I so enjoyed seeing this youngster exploring his world. Cute cute cute!
I love your Whistlers on Wednesdays posts!! I hope they do come back... :)
Love these! He's fascinating and so curious. I'm sorry they're gone!
Shame they've gone (where do they go to?)but you managed to get some great shots of them, very amusing! :)
That is a pleasant overload in different poses.
These are awesome pics!
Gone? Oh no!!! I didn't get to see their bills change color! I'm so glad to have seen all these beautiful shots and to hear that six made it to leave. Hope they do well! Love the little water drops on their backs. I've enjoyed this series so much!
Oh my gosh -- I hope you mean gone as in migrated. Please say you do. I was going to make a light comment about 'the leader of the pack' but then I when I read the end I was afraid to make a joke.
Olá, como sempre o é, a serie de fotos estão lindas. Abraçoag
Hi Tex. Wonderful series. I think he is going to be the leader of the pack. Up for adventure I think.
Great serie, hope they will be back!
OH---I'm sure you miss seeing that little family… Guess the other little ones learned to fly too….Love seeing the juvie.. That one photo of Mom and Dad with the Juvie in the middle of them is adorable…. Love it…Hope they are safe --as they head south for warmer pastures… AND--I hope they come back to see you soon.Hugs,Betsy
Good thing is right!...:)JP
die gaan nooit meer weg ,die hebben het veelste goed.
Lovely series of your Whistler Family. When will the young ones get their orange bills?
I love this! It gave me tears of joy! :)
How green field! .. Your ducklings as happy as ever. I love it .. Regards
Hopefully they come back next season :))
Off to somewhere warm. You will miss them! ;-)
These are just amazing t, what a great close up view we got!!Are they gone, gone?? Or will they return?? Do you see any of the whistlers in the winter??
T, great series of shots! That young one certainly is curious! A wonderful new world opening up before him/her!
You have a lovely blog, the photos are stunning. I really enjoyed visiting.:)Madison

They are such characters and appear not to mind that you are photographing them.

I am still sewing!!! My fingers are so sore. As I was scrolling down these precious photos I was thinking...I wonder how much longer this family is going to stay put before they fly away...and then I read it. What a wonderful story you have shared with all of us. They have really grown. It is amazing. g
I love that one foot resting on the dish! He's a fine, strapping young lad!
So sweet and precious seeing how big this one is and how well it is getting along...a wonderful post filled with magic of nature at it's best~
Baby is very curious! But taking to it all like a duck to....well, you know. ;-)
What a cute family! I enjoyed the series at the watering dish and bath. They are so darn cute! I hope they come back, I can not wait until Spring. Have a great evening.
Ha.. I love how they stand in their water. They're too cute.
Great photos! aren't they having FUN!!
It's funny the other five are so far behind in their development.
Been out of commission sick in Emerg so just back on board in blog land.Happy the family Whistlers are all up and away and will return in Spring.They will know what side of the fence to come in the Spring.
I always love seeing what the Whistlers are up to! Great series of shots!
They are so adorable! Great shots, Theresa!
Wow~ that is so amazing that his beak is not pink like the others!
Oh my. They have grown up really fast. Soon they will be adults. It is amazing how fast animals grow.
Cute young ones!
Are the salmon colored beaks the parents? Or are they a particular gender? You must have been sorry to see these ducks go.
They flew the coop!
The one duck seems so curious of you and your camera. So cute!
Hi Theresa, So glad you had the chance to watch the family of Whistlers grow up. Sad when they go, but perhaps they will return. Great series of funny, beautiful photographs. Have a super Thurs. tomorrow!
I wish you could send one my way! Just one and I would be happy...though two would be better. They are so cute...
LOVE and JOY to see.
Oh, my heart skipped a beat when you said they were all gone! I've grown rather fond of that little family! You must have felt so abandoned! I do love the fierce look in that youngster's eyes. There was something quite different about that one. You could see the intelligence. I do hope they come back.... xo Karen
cute creatures :)
They are just TOO cute!
He's a handsome dude! Glad most of them survived and were able to travel. They'll probably be back at some point...fully colored.
Może jednak wrócą, bo bardzo lubiłam oglądać Twoje obserwacje ich. Pozdrawiam.However, it can come back, because I really liked watching your observations of them. Yours.
these are exactly what the doctor order .. they make me laugh and warm my heart perfect for an icy cold almost end of the week day!
I'm going to miss them! Loved his inquisitiveness.
Awww, too bad they are gone. But at least you got some good shots while they were there.
I love these and NEVER get tired of seeing them because they always "quack" me up…hardy har-har!
This made me laugh!
Hot feet? I don't know how you got anything done while they were there. I would want to be out watching them all day. I'm going to miss them!
almost an animation series. I never do tire of these duckysALOHA to YOUfrom HonoluluComfort Spiral =^..^= <3 > < } } ( ° >
Wonderful series of your "over-achiever"!
They can fly!!! I am so glad and now they are gone. I am glad they grew fast and the weather waited for them to survive. Sweet pictures. MB
Nice pictures Tex, never get tire of seeing great wildlife shot!!Hoe many Whistlers are there now?
It's been awhile since I've visited, Tex! Glad to see the whistlers are still King here at the Ranch.
Just another day in the neighborhood. Life is so ducky!
What fun to see these pictures . . . happy you were able to get these pictures before they flew away.
A long series of photos of these beautiful ducks and I still can not get enough. Very nice series again.
Haha, you got some terrific poses!
Of course that guy was the first! He looks so smart!BTW, you can never post too many photos of Whistlers...
