I know how they feel!!!:@)
Awww! They are so sweet. You were able to get some great photos.
Getting my Whistler Fix early this morning! I was with them: NOT LIKING IT!! Good thing with all our really cold weather is that it never lasted very long. Have a great day. blessings ~ t.
I'd like to experience thunder snow...just once!Our mallards were "hunkered down" like that against the wind last weekend. They were lying down eating the corn I gave them.
Poor things! I always did wonder about how birds could stand sitting/walking on snow/ice. Looks so uncomfortable.
Brrrr...makes me shiver just looking at these photos.
They do look put out! lolThe first time our Mountain Cur experienced snow he walked around and around the edge of the pasture trying to get away from it.
They look like they're ready for spring :)
They do appear to be a bit confused!
Oh my they certainly didn't look happy. Nothing worse than cold feet even in the bird world. Have a wonderful Wednesday.Best wishes Molly
My heart goes out to them, i don't like ice storms either.
maar er was gelukkig eten genoeg.
Snow, ice in March? Even your ducks are that surprised. Beautiful photographic series. Greetings from Spring, distant Polish. Lucia
They seem perplexed!
Oh, the poor things. I often wonder how the birds here and in the northern regions stand to have cold feet all the time. I sure wouldn't like it!! :)
I hear my wife's voice.. "Baby Duckie!"
I feel their pain. This winter was not amusing.
Love the comments with the photos. The "this takes coordination" one is really cute!
I am always pleasantly surprised at the number of birds that survive winter.
They certainly look unhappy in one-foot misery. Poor little guys! I don't like walking around barefoot in the snow, either. :-)
Only in Texas!!!! That made me feel chilly, sitting in the lounge chair near the pool...:)JP
Dearest Theresa;Oh My; they LOOK cold! I felt so sorry for them reading your captions," teeth chattering, ice-walk shuffle."(^^;) Poor cute whistlers☆☆☆Sending you lots of love and hugs from Japan to my American photographer friend, xoxo Miyako*
Awww! I feel so sad for their cute little feet. Thunder with snow is quite rare!
I thought they would be wearing "Duck Boots."
Having had a Minniesnowda snowstorm yesterday, I know EXACTLY how these guys feel! And it isn't good, either . . .Jo, Stella and Zkhat
Ah. Now I understand why they never come Minnesota far North...:)
Love the contrast between those pretty Whistlers and the snow. Great photos, so wish they would travel through here :)
The Whistlers are so pretty! A very nice series of shots!
Your understanding of these birds and what they are doing is very interesting to see. It has grown, hasn't it?
Poor cold ducks. I bet they were glad when it all melted. Such funny looks on their faces.
I know they must have been thinking, what the heck? But, oh well, life goes on!
The poor whistlers may have wondered if they came too north this year. I hope a warming trend happened soon!
haha! Yeah, they don't look happy. It's not supposed to do that so far south!
They must have been really surprised when the snow came! :)
Aw those sweet things, brrrr. Snow storm in a thunderstorm?? Wow never heard of that before and it sounds crazy.
Poor things! How confusing is that.There was a tornado warning and touch down near my daughter's during a blizzard on Monday. Never heard of that before but I have heard of thunder snow.
A tad confused I'd say, poor Whistlers....Blessings Francine.
Rethinking that decision not to migrate?
Poor things, they do look a bit disgruntled and confused.
Tex this is a great series of snaps of the Whistlers! Their feathery bodies and pink feet and beakers look extra pretty/handsome in contrast to the white "stuff"! Thorougly enjoyed this post this morning.. :)
Poor little things, trying to stay warm! Looks like my Misty (dog) in the dead of winter (although she's never managed to stand on 1 leg - but three.)
They do look cold and disgruntled and a tad confused!! I know just how they feel!
They do seem a bit put out. Love the different poses you captured.
those little feet must have been cold-great poses...I hope they've better weather now.
Got my coffee here. Sitting comfy.It is Whistlers time at the Range. Great, great. Oh beautiful takes as always.
Oh,poore Whistlers!It must be cold out there!Wonderful pictures Tex!!I really enjoyed them!Dimi...
Oh poor babies. That first shot of them snuggling up for warmth is so tender.
Bad day for Whistlers ... but at least it was only one day. So sweet.
Awwww!! I can imagine their little pink bare feet got very cold.
Your Whistlers have so much personality. I love your many images of them. :) Keep 'em coming!
If you weren't so busy blogging, you could be knitting them some socks!
A very interesting series of the ducks dilemma of trying to eat and cope with the snow pellets. I liked how innovative they were in an attempt to keep their feet warm.
They are so funny! Poor orange feet!
The beauty of these birds! Beautiful colors and feathers!
Nope, not happy at all. Their poor feet!
They do not look pleased with your weather surprise. Some fancy footwork happening as a result.
I used to drive home, at night, on Interstate 70 and it would be snowing like crazy and there would be lots of thunder and lightening.
Oh, poor Whistlers ! But they are so beautiful !Greetings
You duck mind reader!;-) Aloha
Thanks for proving that people who think ducks have teeth aren't wrong. Ha!
Oh, the poor Whistlers, snow, yuk.
They are so beautiful! I feel for them...it's time to have warmth!❤⊱彡 Lindahttp://coloradofarmlife.wordpress.com
Poor babies! They look lovely all cuddled together though. Maybe it will finally stop snowing now! And warm up. For them and for everyone else!
Brrr so glad that weather is gone...love those whistlers..
Fun photos - I can't stand for my feet to be cold, either!
Alas, the Whistlers will never visit me in Breckenridge!
I know very well how they feel! ;-)They are so cute.
i know you felt bad for them. I see all that food you give them, not at all spoiled. LOL69 is a good number, I was born in 69. :) I'll be 45 in a few days. :)hugs!
My poor babies, their cute feet must have been freezing! Great shots and text!
Poor babies! Winter was rough on many this year - humans AND animals. Thank goodness they had plenty of food at your place to help keep them warm. :-D~Lindy
That is so funny! ;-)
They looked bummed and I don't blame them one bit.
awww poor babies, perhaps a blanket would have been helpful.....hehehe!!can you believe "we" have done this 69 times ;)
Teeth chattering I can hear :-) ... very beautiful pictures.Greetings.
I wasn't aware you got any of that thunder snow??? Is this the first time you've mentioned it? Please tell me it is! The photos are freakin' awesome, especially considering the weather!
Poor little whistlers! But I imagine that you must like the precip in whatever form it comes. Maybe if I ate standing on one foot, I might lose a little weight.
They need to line up for pedicures on those gnarly toe nails. :D
I know their woe!
I don't imagine they were whistling in appreciation. Maybe in derision.
T, Aww, poor babies!
They sure are cute little critters!!!
Ohh Just beautiful.. :-)))
Awww...Sigh...poor things! But I must say the white backdrop provides for some great pics!
Great series and captions Theresa.
I can imagine it must be pretty terrible to be pelted with pieces of ice! Glad the hail wasn't too big, that would really hurt!
Poor little ducks! They probably thought something terrible had happened at the ranch. :-)
Magic photos as always. The snow is creating the myth. And you became a myth yourself.Yannis Politopoulos
Hope they managed in the snow. You have to build some small houses for them :-)
This is a challenge never considered before stopping by, Theresa. My family also wonders when the snow and rain will stop in the Midwest. Beautiful photos!
Beautiful birds, the snow in March must be exceptional.Greetings,Filip
Oh the poor birds. They must be really cold.
Awe, poor birds but they sure are smart critters. Love the photos.
Looks like you were right out there with them, probably freezing your hiney off too. Once again a fabulous set. The close-ups with the seeds are my faves. :)
Do the whistlers use a spray-tan booth to get that orange glow to their legs?
Poor babies! They do have big feet. MB
Oh --poor little guys... They probably can't stand 'that' weather... Amazing what a winter we have had --all over the country. Hope Spring is here to stay since it's almost hot here this week.. We've been busy working in the yard--spreading mulch after weeding. fun fun! Hugs, Betsy
Quite the antics by these boys!Now you tell us you had some snow this winter!!!
Plenty of tip toeing going on through that thunder snow!
That first photo is wonderful! Didn't you provide a heated house for them? No? Shame on you :)
they do look a little puzzled. too cute.
They are cute as always. I am sure they were puzzled over the ice and snow.
I saw some sparrows swinging on tree branches. They reminded me so much of your blog posts.
Poor fellas- I'm glad those days are gone till next year! (Not happy about the strong storms that keep popping up though!)
They look relaxed.
They look cold in that top shot.
Dearest Theresa,Guess the webbing of their feet is rather sensitive. Poor things as it was such unusual weather. Looks like now finally we got spring as it feels great and things are blooming all over.Hugs and I'm happy this afternoon the problems with my internet server got solved!Mariette
Them Whistlers must have been watching the Herons do their one leg routine... Ha ha! Great bunch of pictures!
Brrr, cold feet are the worst!
Ice and snow all the way down there. Poor whistlers! ;)
Awww poor little Whistlers. Just makes me want to make some tiny house shoes for all of them.
The white snow makes a great contrast to their cute beaks!
Poor ducks. They are not used with cold weather.
Never fear. Spring is here!
They sure are photogenic.
Nice to see them! Beautiful pictures!
Great seeing them in snow background, but feel sorry for their uncomforted! Beautiful picture as usual...Btw. I am back :)
°✿⊱ º° ✿✿ Formam um grupo tão harmônico!...Bom restinho de semana!Beijinhos.♫° ·.✿⊱°•
Such dreadful weather for the poor little guys!
Fabulous shots, and they are adorable to look at! What a life :)
Great story of how they cope with the cold feet. Poor Whistlers.Hugs,JB
I always want to give the birds a coat or something. LOL
U mnie w tym roku było śniegu jak na lekarstwo:)
Another terrific series on your Whistlers, Theresa!I totally agree with them - not happy with that cold wet stuff!!
Great shots of beautiful birds. Looking at these pictures made us cold :-) Brrrr... Greetings/ Michał and Piotr
the details on those duck wings are amazing. Love that! I had two ducks visit me in my front yard yesterday. They haven't visited since last year. I wonder if they're the same pair. I think they're hungry.
Aw…poor little things! They are so cute, and I don't blame them…I don't care much for the snow either! LOL Oh…I wanted to tell you I thought of you when I was reading my book and it mentioned a Wood Duck. I had to smile, because now I know what it really is!
I'm with the ducks. It's March. Bring on the spring weather already.
I'm surprised you didn't provide a shelter for them. You love them a lot!!!
Aw, your poor buddies. They do look cold. I hope they don't give your place bad accommodation ratings in the online survey. I experienced thunder snow once, it was an odd feeling, like something wasn't quite right. Hope the storms are missing your area tonight.
Poor things. That must have been a shock to their systems. You took good advantage of the situation, though, with some fantastic photos. Loved the "coordination" shot. I had marveled at that stance myself, before I saw your caption.
Excellent drawings of a good lunch ;)
You got snow and ice, and we are now getting more and more sun and heat :-) Nice pictures of whistlers :-))))))
