all they need are bar stools. seems like this is their weekend 'water cooling hole'.
'bar flies'. 'oooh l@@k at the feathers on that one, i rate her an 8'. 'nah, she's probably a 7 but l@@k at this one pulling up there, now she's a knock out. i'd rate her at least a 9'.

'see ya web, see ya next weekend' 'have a light feathered week end'

Lovely reflections! They seem all settled in.

HOOTIN ANNI said...

Gotta love this!! Heck, the whistlers on the fence would be a couple of great images for your Good Fences meme!

The whistlers are such tranquil perching alongside the pond. This is serenity in nature!

Primitive Stars said...

Morning, Beautiful reflections, love all the action around your pond, Blessings Francine.

Revrunner said...

There sure is a whole lot of loitering going on. ;-)

Roan said...

A plethora of whistlers.

georgettesullins said...

Coming, going and stayin' at leisure. Fun reunion.

Sandra said...

like that lift off in the last one.. i really like blurry wings and motion. the first two are great for good fences...

Tree Hugger - Suzan said...

The whistlers have found a permanent home!! Guess the babies are full grown now with all their color.

Tina Fariss Barbour said...

I love how the one is coming in for a landing in the last shot. And you catch such lovely reflections!

Pix Under the Oaks said...

You know I'm loving the last shot! Headed right for a clear landing.. :) Hopefully!

Molly The Wally said...

Love the reflections. They sure look happy in the sun. Have a fabulous Friday.
Best wishes Molly

Lynn said...

sweet shots, loved the working wings

Julia said...

As I look at all the photos of these beautiful ducks, I wonder how many hours of enjoyment they have given you as payment for their feed. They have become part of your every day life as you share them to the world. I also wonder what they would think of the many comments people make about them. ...

Have a great weekend coming up.
Hugs,
JB

DJan said...

They are adorable ducks, I think they know how to live, and down there at the Run-Around Ranch especially. :-)

Love the blue sky reflected in the pond!

The whistlers use the fence so well. They look great all lined up. When swimming, then we get a better idea of the large number of ducks. Fine series.

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

Just chilling at the Run A Round!

Muffy's Marks said...

Duckies all in a row, sitting on a fence with nowhere to go!!! Have a great weekend.

amanda | wildly simple said...

I just love them all lined up on that gate/fence.. Makes me think of the expression "all your ducks in a row." :)

Margaret Adamson said...

HI Tex I Love your Whistlers and the reflections are great. Have a great weekend.

Great and cute reflections! I think your first capture is my favorite. It seems never a dull moment at your place:)

Fun60 said...

That first shot seems to be a discussion as to who is going to take the first dive of the day.

Joseph Jameson-Gould said...

Those orderly queues they're forced into on that fence is really not their style!

Crafty Green Poet said...

cute photos, the whistlers always look like they'd be fun to hang out with

Lynne said...

Permanent residents for sure . . . I liked the bright blue reflections . . .

Red said...

I'm always amazed to see ducks perch like a boreal bird.

Samson Asks: Auntie Tex, are you sure you're not suffering from Whistler Madness?

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

In the top shot, the one whistler looks like it's staring at the reflection.

Debbie said...

outstanding reflections, especially in the first image!!

those whistlers are just too darn cute....i really like when they open up their wings!!

Robin Lamb said...

T, good ones! Looks like you still have a herd of them around!

love the last one with "lift off" :)

Leovi said...

Yes, nice reflections in the water! Wonderful photos!

Our photos said...

Very nice photos

LV said...

Love all your great shots, but the last one caught my eye. Look like a big intruder came flying in disturbing the little ones playing. I will not have a post next Thursday. I am taking a break and be back on 17th.

Lynn@Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

Just hangin' with my peeps:@)

Stephen Hayes said...

I imagine a flock of whistlers makes a good alarm system.

parker said...

Always seems the whistlers are having a party down at the pond.

Dianne said...

I love them, even their reflections make me smile

Cuties! They look adorable sitting on the fence...a bit goofy, but adorable!

I love it when you manage to capture them with wings spread. Their wing feathers are so pretty.

Sandy Carlson said...

Hanging out at the water cooler!

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Theresa,

KB Bear said...

I love the Whistlers!

Susan said...

They're real community minded aren't they! Gorgeous Whistlers :D)

Raggedy Creations said...

great reflections. looks like the pond has filled back up nicely.

Hilary said...

That first one reminds me of an amusement park faux shooting game.. all lined up along the fence. Too cute. (Of course you know I'd never advocate shooting at these sweeties)

Barb Brookbank said...

Hello whistlers! Love the shots of them lined up on the fence!

wayside wanderer said...

Enjoying such a pretty day!

Paula said...

Looks like they've moved in to stay.

~Kim at Golden Pines~ said...

Do those cuties ever not take good photos or make a great post? I don't think so! :-)!!

Paul said...

Those whistlers are certainly a photogenic bunch, sure were nice reflections in the pond on the day you took these pictures!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

They make the best reflections!

pattisjarrett said...

I was trying to figure out the extended wing in the third photo. That last one is funny, there's a cannonball jumper in every crowd.

damian said...


On the pond much going on, you're probably close to it :)

Greets :)

José Mendonça said...

So many! Wonderful.

Helma said...

In the third picture is one that wings are pretty wide and that is wonderful to see. Also in picture seven is the irascible even beautiful to see :-)

Lisa said...

I would have had my kids counting these if they were young and with me. Loved the lines. Well taken and done

Kris Beskidzki said...

Wonderful. :)))
