Your coffee can/platter/pedestal feeder cracks me up. Keep that "duck" tape handy.

messymimi said...

Oh, yum! You can almost hear them saying it.

William Kendall said...

all they need is five more whistlers and they can seize control of the ranch.

Optimistic Existentialist said...

Love these shots. Looks like their teetering a bit!

Nancy J said...

Landing with wings spread out wide, how do they balance so well? Looks like it is challenging to find your spot there, hope it all stays horizontal for them .Cheers, Jean

marilyn said...

These guys can sure put a smile on the face and in your case I' m sure out loud laughter.

Janey and Co. said...

If I eve come upon a Whistler in the wild, I am going to think it is Weds!
Fun shots...

Joseph Jameson-Gould said...

They're a boisterous lot!

Carole M. said...

What a lot of humour those birds provide!!

Kjell T. Evensen said...

I love your feeder. :-)

Revrunner said...

Sort of the Whistlers' version of Starbucks.

Jeevan said...

Wow! Excellent shot and great detail on images... Love the first one :)

Roan said...

Now that's a great idea for a feeder! The Whistlers sure do seem to enjoy it.

They can be natural comedians at times.

Molly The Wally said...

Love the swooping in shot. Have a wonderful Wednesday.
Best wishes Molly

Barb Brookbank said...

I love that feeder ;) and great landing!

DJan said...

The feeder does have a precarious ambience to it, must attract those whistlers. I am quite taken with these fine birds, Tex. Never knew they existed before you introduced us. :-)

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Theresa,
you have some greedy clients at your all-you-can-eat bird restaurant!
Hugs,
Mariette

troutbirder said...

Wondering how long it took you train these wild ducks for their "balancing act?"

Anvilcloud said...

That's a unique feeder -- just ducky in fact.

Judy said...

Love the top shot!

DeniseinVA said...

Great shots, a real couple of acrobats!

Bob Bushell said...

Is it Wednesday..................

Blackberry Lane said...

I especially love that first photo. Have a great day.

Getting close to moving day...we will be so glad!

Julia said...

They must be getting heavy with all the free food they're getting. I hope that your bird feeder will last a long time. Great shots.
Hugs,
JB

parker said...

Nice images! The feeder has developed a lean due to the heavy use by the ducks.

Laura. M said...

Arrived just in time;)

Irma said...

Beautiful pictures, Tex.
All photos are perfectly sharp, compliments.
Greetings Irma

Montanagirl said...

Very cute - but it looks a little precarious! I guess they didn't tip off though. I'd imagine it's nailed to that coffee can. lol

bailey-road.com said...

It's like a living duck sculpture!
You sure have a lot of dandy shots of these adorable ducks!

don said...

The whisler's antic continue to entertain and amaze me. They are so comical in the way they manage to get food. Fine shots!

Gillian Olson said...

Beth said...

Quite a balancing act those whistlers are doing! Great shots!

Sylvia K said...

Ah, happy Whistlers!! Love that first shot!!

Raggedy Creations said...

that's too cute. How in the world do you have it fastened so they don't tip it.

Terry and Linda said...

Perfect! Who could ask for more!!!?

I don't think those Whistlers care what the feeder is made from.

Gail said...

Amazing!

I bet you could have captured those hummingbirds beautifully.

Marit Sønstebø said...

Lovely birds and feeder! :-)

Cranberry Morning said...

Debbie said...

it's a balancing act....one, i might add, that they have mastered!!

love, love, love the wing spread in image #1!!

Farm Girl said...

You know those silly ducks just make me laugh. I love those expressions. I bet you sit and laugh at them too.

Melissa said...

Oh,love the wing span! And I also really love the perch you've made for them. It compliments the beaks so nicely!

Ela said...

They are gorgeous !!

Primitive Stars said...

So cute, gotta love those Whistlers, Francine.

Pom Pom said...

They are so funny! They're bold and flashy! Aren't you glad they hang around? They know how crazy you are about whistlers.

Betsy Adams said...

TILT!!!!! That one looks wobbly... I'm sure you have it glued somehow.. But the Whistlers don't care, do they???? ha

Hugs,
Betsy

Marcoantonio Arellano said...

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

Busiest restaurant in town!

Gail Dixon said...

You got some amazing shots here! Love the balancing act in the first shot.

karmnik54 said...

Fajne fotki:)

Beth Niquette said...

That first picture is a GREAT capture! I LOVE it! lol The photo just fills my eyes. And looking at the rest of these photos--I'm wondering how two duckies can balance there at the same time! LOL

Łucja-Maria said...

Oh, your ducks are very photogenic.
Great photographic series.
Greetings.

Tree Hugger - Suzan said...

What a balancing act you have going on there!! I'm assuming that you have added the coffee can to keep the squirrels from climbing up the feeding plate!! Only those with wings are invited!! I'm still waiting for them to start eating out of your hand :-}}}

Beatrice Euphemie said...

Now that's a balancing act! Love the wing spread and the nonchalance. xo Karen

Leovi said...

Yes , very nice pictures , the first is great ..!

Karen said...

Great shots, especially the top one as he's landing on the feeder. Have a nice day.

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

Looks like Count Dracula invaded your feeder!

You're getting awfully resourceful maintaining that feeder.

Karen S. said...

They always put on such a delightful show!

Brian King said...

Red said...

And the guys who are having dinner always have to take their time and stare at the poor guys who are waiting.

Rose said...

The Coffee Can Cafe seems to stay really busy!

Michelle said...

That first shot is great!

wildlifewatcher said...

Hi Theresa, I sure do enjoy seeing your Whistlers on Wednesdays! Love the home-made duck feeder. Unique and it works! Have a great rest of the week!

Life happens said...

Ive never seen a feeder like that. Now I must replicate it. :)

Lady Lilith said...

They are really beautiful and playful.

Randy said...

Either a bad landing or too much to eat.

Jerry E Beuterbaugh said...

In the heart of the northeast Texas prairie, who can restore balance when the scales have been tipped?

Susan said...

I don't know what's more comical, the whistlers or the bird feeder!
Cute, cute, cute!

Grant Blakeney said...

I love ducks. They look very beautiful.

Jo's World said...

Whistler " Pilot to Navigator: How'm I doin"?

I love that first shot! If there were a pool behind him, I'd almost think he was getting ready to do a back flip! lol!

Karen said...

I really wish we had these sweet ducks near here!

You're sure getting some impressive mileage out of that bird feeder... I'm thinking I might have to build one for around here!

Em Parkinson said...

Hi there! Have often seen your comments on others' blogs but didn't realise you were a blogger too. Came over from Margaret Adamson's blog. Beautiful pictures and such a relief not to have the word verification nightmare. I'm beginning to stop commenting on people who have it - it's just too time consuming.

Best wishes,

Em

Pix Under the Oaks said...

I think they enjoy the challenge!

A Quiet Corner said...

I guess keeping your balance goes for ducks too!!!...:)JP

Terri @ Backward B Ranch said...

The whistlers are getting a little top heavy..HA HA. At least Bubba isn't sitting right smack dab in the middle of their food plate.

MarkD60 said...

Love the feeder! I'm gonna make one!

Kris Anderson said...

Never seen those color of ducks before -- great shots... very unique feeder -- and good idea..
