Wow ! The whole place is teeming with whistlers !
I love the photos and the video! So funny that a few wait on the deck railing for you!
Wow! I've never seen so many ducks in a mega-flock before!
They really like it there!
That is just amazing to see so many, they know where they are well off. I saw my first last March in Florida, there was only half dozen or so,and I thought tha t was great. I've also been listening to your Mockingbird Vid. that brings back memories too, thanks for that . All the best Gordon.
Love the photos of them on the fence and gate. Have a great day.
The frost looks like it was painted on in a beautiful pattern! They certainly will let you know if you are late with breakfast, won't they?
so many of them too and great to actually hear them, thanks for that
I love whistlers on Monday as much as I do on Wednesday! Love that first picture, Tex. :-)
So pretty colors of the ducks! beautiful photos ...
Ah... true friends keep coming back to see you.
good morning theresa,so much beauty!i particularly love the second one. wonderful composition and reflections.
There's always company coming. :)
I like the frosty feather picture. It is nice to see your pond so full.
What a lineup!
OMG and I thought Tom had forgotten to roll the garbage out ....it being Weds!...Just kidding. Sounds like you spend a lot of your day feeding others!
The frosted feather is so beautiful, I had to go back and take a second... longer... look.I'm sure that should be called a 'hootenanny' of whistlers; yup, you are now officially (in my mind at least) the Hootenanny Hostel!
love. love. love these little guys! The ones of them fence sitting are SO good! Too cute! blessings ~ tanna
Your phone takes GREAT pics! Love the ice crystals on the feather!
I can't believe how many of them there are!
Uuufff .... avalanche;)Good reflexes, Teresa!!
I know Tejanos always talk about how everything is bigger in Tejas but if when gathered like that they remind you of 'cacaroaches' then you must have some really Beeg ones. :-P
they are so cute waiting for you like that!
That frost-covered duck feather is one of the most unique pictures I've ever seen.
Morning Tex oh your cellphone takes great pics but your eye is marvelous. Oh how I love Whislers and their sound. Hug B
They sound heavenly! Your pond is a favorite of so many winged beauties!
Who needs coffee in the morning when you have whistlers, so many of them.Oh I love that pretty frosted feather. So unique.Hugs,JB
i will go back & watch your video. great cell pics. they are so great these days. even for videos. have a good week, T. ( :
The frost decorated feather is beautiful. Yikes! You have a lot of Whistlers.
Love all of those whistlers sitting up on the fence top over the pond, and your video is so cute! Glad to see you are posting from the ( cell) Phone! LOL
So many whistlers at one time! :-)
So many !!!!...lovely week darling...love Ria...x !
Oh, I wish you hadn't said that about cockroaches. I'll never be able to look at Whistlers the same way again.My favorites of this set are the first two. The photo of the frost on the feather is truly beautiful. And the next one, of the whistlers sitting on the rail and reflected in the water, is also lovely. Your cell phone does good work.
OMG--these are beautiful shots of such beautiful ducks! Can you send some of them my way! Tell them to fly north :-)
The whistling sounds beautiful! How neat the way the frost flakes sit on the feather. I must agree these little guys look like a bunch of cockroaches when there are so many together in 1 spot.
I think your flock is growing really fast. my favorite shots today are 6 and 7.
I especially like the feather with ice crystals. I have often wondered if you get eagles and owls in your area?
OMG, that is quite a crowd there! I played the video for Mr. Jim at the breakfast table (using my iPad). He had never heard whistling ducks before, LOL!
Now that is some major squabbling while they feed! Beautiful photographs!
I've never seen so many whistlers together.The video is beautiful.
Oh my gosh there are so many now. That is incredible. I bet they are eating a bag of scratch a week at least. Your video turned out nice. I enjoy watching them.
OMG, what a flock! It must be deafening.
Cockroaches! LOL, that cracked me up. Your cell phone takes wonderful photo's. :)
Wow! That's quite a flock.
The Whistlers love the Run-A-Round Diner! I love seeing them all lined up on the fence.
I bet you can guess that the fence sitters are my favs! Just love them...and I am always surprised at the sounds they make. Just not what I expect, but not sure what I do expect, either.
You must live in the most magical place ever, T.
Wonderful photos ! Loved the vid to . Thanks for sharing . Have a good day !
Such beauty in your pictures Tex!Its always a joy watching them!I love your video too!!Wish you a happy week!!Dimi...
Nice pictures , I love these frost crystals on the pen !
That's a lot of whistlers! I love how they perch on the fence and the deck railing. Beautiful views of the pond, too.
Love the frost on the feather!
Ah so sneaky ;-) Your cell phone (and you) take great pictures!
they look so comical in their big group! I love the frost on the feather, beautiful
Wow! So many Whistlers! I love the shot of the frosted feather.
You are feeding so many of them! Good woman! ;-)
These are great. Crop a couple and you have a great entry for Weekend Reflections (#2) and Weekend Fences (#6). I never imagined you having such a big herd of them there. Cockroaches are right. Wow!
The feather: Amazingly beautiful & such a miracle of design! The whistlers on the fence, also amazing. They sure do like you, party at Tex's!
The "TexWis Whistling Duck Resort". lol. Can't believe how many there are now!
That's a lot of whistlers!
A fine series of good shots. The cell phone does an admirable job of shooting.
A lot of whistlers indeed!! And what fun shots for the day! The video is great!! Hope your week is off to a good start! Enjoy!
Jeese Louise! The numbers are astounding. Love how they line up on the iron railing over the water. They have certainly put out the word on your property!
Oh my God, so many geese ... Yours sincerely.
You need big discounts on their feed, and this is almost a full time job. Here, we feed the birds if we sit outside for morning tea, and they get to know the time to gather round. Love those fence sitters. Cheers from Jean
They must have a plenty of hard cash, and so would I.
I like your imagination, they do look like a herd of cockroaches. They are amazing.
Haha...absolutely love their fence sitting. I am impressed you still have grass where they are eating!
Hi Theresa, Nice snaps from the cell phone camera. Oh the joy of having a flock of these Whistlers! So cute and fun. Good for you! Have a super nice week ahead!
That feather shot would make an excellent piece of wall art
Invasion of the Whistlers! You are so right, they do look like cockroaches in those pictures.
I love that first image of the crystals on the feather. How beautiful.. even with the bird poop over on the left. ;)
je hebt er wel heel wat monden te voeden.
beautiful picture of the feathers. are these recent? loks like the whole herd is back and not just the one little late family.
I love the icy feather and the fence sitting!
Love the photo of the frost on the feathers :) I am rather a fence sitter myself. Laughing about the cockroaches. xo Karen
T, what a crowd! They should be laying you some eggs, seeing all the feed you're giving them!
Wow! I think you're operating a duck sanctuary!
Piórko jest pomalowane w gwiazdki przez mróz. Ślicznie to wygląda. Głośno się kaczki dopominają o jedzenie. Pozdrawiam.The stylus is painted in stars by frost. Pretty it looks. Ducks are claiming loudly for food. Yours.
omgoodness!! I don't think I ever realized how many there were until now!!You are such a kind soul to provide food for them!! And you are going to go broke!!
Wonderful to see so many Whistling Duck together!
Oh, your phone! I thought maybe they'd finally tracked you down. ;-)LOVE the photos, especially the fence one.
Love the video! Been missing that sound... which can really mess up an afternoon nap! :) Stay warm!!
Wow, many Whistlers around, such pretty pictures, love the frosty feather, Francine.
If I had no sight - I would think I was listening to lovely little song birds!!Hahahaaaa- You have created lovely little whistler monsters!! They will never leave you now!!! Canadian geese make a mess of football fields and running tracks around the football fields with their poop - how are the whistlers on your deck?? Are they killing the grass or fertilizing it?? Still think you need to sit right next to the bird bath and make them come to you if they want to seat!! Very pretty and interesting feather with the frost on it!! With your cell phone - NICE!
Really nice photos.Waiting for feeding ... excellent.
I love that you snuck them in on Monday!
It looks like they have you VERY well trained! ;) Love that first picture!
Cockroaches huh?? As in they will multiply and never leave?
they sure found a wonderful bed and breakfast at your place...and we get to watch all the fun!!! I just love hearing them....so much sweeter than QUACKING...
Good Morning dearest Theresa;Oh My!!! I never thought your Whistlers get together with that many number. They must know the sweet lovely lady(*^_^*) So funny or ironic for a person who doesn't encounter the chance to see bird much. And I enjoyed listening their squabbling as you say.Haha, my husband sat in the chair and waiting for the food (breakfast).Sending you lots of love and hugs from Japan to my American photographer friend, xoxo Miyako*
Sneaking in Whistling Ducks on a Monday, so glad I stopped by. I like the shots of them lined up on the fence and your deck railing.. They are calling you to come and feed them, that is cute! I love hearing their sounds too. Great shots!
I've never seen soo many Whistling Ducks! I love the second picture. I watched the video, they do whistle!
Cockroaches!!!! LOL!!! I just showed the Pres...contact Ducks Unlimited...they get people to plant crop to maintain the population...maybe they can help with the feed!...:)JP
I like photo #6 as they all line the top of the fence! Too funny that they are brazen enough to get close to the house to let you know they're there and hungry:@)
The frosty feather pic is a keeper!
love the ice crystals but they make me glad for Southern California weather
Those Whistlers have a very good thing going on!
That's a lot of ducks!
You ARE a sneaky Pete, and I really like the first pic of the feathers.
Love the feather shot! That's pretty cool! I think you've created monsters...they may never leave. :-)
Holy cow! THAT's where all the ducks go!Pearl
It seems that they've got you well trained! REALLY nice photos! You also got some nice reflections.
Do they ever quack?
It looks like they know a good thing. They've found a plentiful source of food.
Wow how I love these photos! (I thought your comment about cockroach is so funny) I think you are so blessed to have them so close by!Blessings,Gert
Wow TexWisGirl! You certainly get your fair share of birds visiting you. I see the Whistlers are on a Monday. Love it! Great images and nice to see them again.
Oh my! Too bad you can't charge them room and board.
I love the second pictures.Oh my you do have a gaggle don't you. Oh wait a minute...that's geese. Wonder what they call that many whistlers.
Love the ROACHES but my fave is the frost on the feather.
Oh my goodness! I never realized that you get that many at one time! I'd almost be scared of being attacked by them when I went out in the yard. They don't sound like I thought they would either.
My Lord that is a huge amount of Whistlers. How many do you think? I love that second pic. MB
I love your comparison of them to cockroaches - it's kind of eerie, but that's what it really looks like when they are all huddled close together like that.
Love the whistlers! but can't help thinking for one brief tiny moment of Hitchcock!!
It's a duck convention! Love that first shot.
If I had all those Whistlers to look at out my window, I'd never get anything done! I really like the frosty feather photo.
I can see it now...More Whistlers Monday.Totally Whistlers TuesdayWhistlers on WednesdayToo many Whistlers ThursdayFeeding Whistlers FridayStill more Whistlers SaturdayShowing Whistlers SundayHa ha!Real nice bunch of Whistler pictures too by the way!
Cockroaches! You crack me up -- and, of course, I can see it. They DO look like cockroaches.
What a marvellous set of shots! Love the snowflakes on the feather!
they really DO whistle! You're kinda their mamaALOHA from HonoluluComfort Spiral =^..^= <3
Wow there are so many! I love the 2nd photo and of course the video... So so good :)
They do seem to be multiplying--LOL! I LOVED hearing them chattering away. They do have a sweet rather un-duck-like sound to them. Thanks, Theresa! :)
What I am next expecting on your blog is a big circle of Whistlers surrounding your tubby little squirrel and all chowing down on your feed!I hope the Whistlers don't hear the cockroach comment, they would be sooo offended.Cheers!Jo
Gosh, they do look like cockroaches. A bit uncomfortable for me as I have a phobia of American house cockroaches. Never mind! I loved the ice crystals in that first photo - very nice capture and I loved the wider shots of the lake - it gave me a feeling of being in the wide outdoors.
It must ber so wonderful to have these geese in your yard!! :))
They are just so marvelous! What a treat to see the pictures of so many! And I love the feather with the ice crystals. Just too neat!
I love the photos and the video!!!
Always makes me smile when I see Whistlers line up on a fence.
That feather is amazing! The giant gang of ducks is a little more scary though!
Amazing images of the whistlers Tex.. It looks as though they breed there near your lake.!I think i would be a little nervous with them sitting on my patio.I do like them..but from a distance.They really do whistle.
Very cool photos. Rush hour, Whistler style. One I wouldn't mind being caught up in I am quick to add.
Wow! They are lot this time... How beautiful perching on the fence, as well swam in water and gathering for lunch! I enjoy them active in video.
That first shot is fantastic!
Fantastic cell phone shots, but the walking on the edge of the fencing, is just wonderful!
There are definitely a BIG BUNCH of them!!! I, too, like the pic of them on the rails - - especially the first one.
Ewwww - cockroaches - no, no, no! They're much too cute! I love the capture of the frost!
Would you look at them?!! No wonder we couldn't find any when we were down there. They really are all in your backyard. Loved the video.
Wow do you ever have a flock of those cute clowns!
You're gonna have 'em knocking on your door for breakfast pretty soon!Great continuing series!
I love that first photo! I also enjoyed immensely hearing them talk and squabble!!! Fun for someone who never really gets to see or hear one except on your blog! :)Lindahttp://coloradofarmlife.wordpress.com *♥´¨) ¸.-´¸.-♥´¨) Happy Valentine’s Day¸.-♥¨) (¸.-` ♥♥´¨
Wow there's so many of them birds, love the feathers with the frost crystals :)
Holy cow! You do have a pile of ducks.
Wow - a great frosty feather photo. You're running soup kitchen there on the ranch!
Quite the flock you've got there!
Wow.. its like a convention of whistlers ! I love how they are hanging out together! :)
You've got a tremendous amount of ducks sitting in your garden!! How great is that garden does not love you!!?? Very nice to see though. The reflection of two photographs I love.
Oh wow! Are you sure you're not running a Whistler farm??
"MOM"! We're HUNGRY! ;-)What a great series! The frost crystals on the feather is such a pretty find. I love seeing the Whistlers lined up on the fence railing in the pond, and their reflection.~Lindy
