Just watching them makes me realize what calm, peaceful lives they lead while the rest of us are rushing around, meeting deadlines and stressing!
and looking super glorious too; lucky Whistlers
Like the resting. Looks like a nice cool spot under the shade tree.
LOL it is a hard life NOT. Have a wonderful Wednesday.Best wishes Molly
It's a duck's life. I'm envious. Great shots.
Tex, your whistling ducks do enjoy living life on your ranch! I am so happy you are sharing them with us! Great shots!
As usual a lovely series on the whistlers... it’s always adorable too see a swan or duck swam :)
Sunshine, a nice pond and many duck friends. Yup. Life looks good there!xo Catherine
Such beautiful colors. Hope you enjoy the day.
They are living the good life!
Yep, it's a rough life:@)
I have to go here...you started out, eating, resting, perching...I was waiting for...pooping...I know my humor is messed up at times. However, I'm sure they have done that too...
You posted some very nice work again lately! :-)Greetings from the Netherlands, Gert Jan
Ahhh....they definitely have the "good life"
The show repeats daily, and i'll bet it never gets boring.
They look like two peas in a pod :)
Interesting that they prefer land to water. They are busy ducks!
I always look forward to your Whistlers on Wednesday.. Great photos of these cuties :)
Morning, yes, the Whistlers have it made at your place, no worries, Francine.
Dearest Theresa,Life sure is good at Run-Around!Those birds are in heaven...Hugs,Mariette
Looks like a very restful day in the life...
Lucky ducks! Keep them around. Good luck does rub off.
They are the best perchers I've ever seen among ducks. How they do it with those feet I'll never know. :-)
Love the 'lather, rinse, repeat.' LOL They're so darned cute!
Not a hard knock life for those cuties! Would love to wander around like them and enjoy the peace and calm! Great shots, Tex!
I like that last shot. Will they stay the summer in your pond? I'm back in Breck for a few days. So much snow. Two feet again over the weekend and my gardens still covered by huge drifts. Enjoy your spring for me!
Such beautiful images of the whistling ducks!Wonderful pictures Tex!!Oh,i love those ducks!!Dimi...
Thanks for a great post on one of my favorite birds. They sure are spreading, aren't they.
There goes the phrase, about taking to water like a duck. Hm, interesting.
I just hope your pond level stays up! Do you still have as many there as you did awhile back?
Still cracks me up to see a duck sitting on a fence.
Such a life. Wonderful
Except for hawks, foxes, hunters and snapping turtles, life is good.
I love those whistlers!
Hehehehe, do you think her camera will find us behind this tree?!!!
Love these Whistlers images.
Of all the wonderful critters you have at your feeders I think I'm most jealous of the Whistlers. I think I could sit on the back deck and watch them all day!
I like the whistlers each Wednesday. It was very interesting to me that they prefer land or shore rather than swimming in the pond. They are such interesting ducks!
Gorgeous photos, beautiful colors!
It's never a Wednesday without whistlers!
It sure is good, very happy Whistlers!
They've found the best home around! Great shots!
I want to be a whistler at your pond!
I really like the third pic and the last one.
Ah, love those Whistlers!!
They have no good reason to leave....
Beautiful series, the water time might have something to do with the turtles?
Believe the whistlers have become permanent fixtures!! Nice permanent fixtures at that!!
Life certainly does seem to be good around there otherwise would all those pretty creatures keep coming back.
Really great shots. So much to discover in your little neck of the woods.MersadMersad Donko Photography
Are they still all there with you, Tex?
They do appear to live the good life! :-) I love the pic of them resting in the shade.
hehe, life is grand for both you and the whistlers!!well maybe not at this exact moment for you BUT all will be back to normal soon. and you will appreciate all you have, even more when it is!! i see the whistlers are not at all deterred by all the commotion!!love you t!!!!
They seem very content!
Yes it is! They have a great life at your place :)
The two Whistlers balancing on the rail are real avian gymnasts.]Such beautiful ducks. I first saw the species in Grand Cayman.
Oh, I love these pictures. These birds look so peaceful and like from a time gone by. Blessings, Catherine
Such fun birds!
They looks so calm, and they must love your place!
They look so calm. Of course they are at your place. Why would I ever think different. Have a great day!
Makes me want to be a Whistler!
One in the water looks like he has undressed, the pink showing up even more. They are great models . Cheers, Jean.
I really like the resting shot. Yes, those well fed little buggers have made the Ranch their home.
I have missed seeing your Whistlers! Such handsome creatures!
With all those Whistlers around,it has to be good.
Very beautiful photos. Wonderful colors!A real contact with the nature.Best wishes from Brasil
I assume they returned for the season while we we're away
I sure hope some of our rain makes it your way!!!♥ღLindahttp://coloradofarmlife.wordpress.com
On one of the picture, they really seem to relax in the grass.Greetings,Filip

Well, what else is there for silly ducks to do? :-)
All I can say, is that at this very moment, I would LOVE to be a whistler duck living at your home.
Absolutely stunning duck ! I love watching your pictures of ducks !
Love those ducks! :))We'll be traveling again beginning tomorrow and will be checking in to see you here every time we are in a US port. :)Hugs,Lois
More Whistlers? I guess Cranky was wrong about their going extinct. Ha!
So you're telling me this is a great day for ducks.
Nice!. No doubt they have taken up permanent residence.
They always have such sweet expressions.
They are just so darn cute!
So many cute shots of them. I'm going to miss ours during the summer.
I never get tired of these guys .The first picture had me thinking of the double mint twins ~ remember that commercial .The last picture I love the composition !
They seem to be having a lovely day.
Hi Theresa, So fun - I don't tire of seeing the adventures of your cuties! Have a great Thursday tomorrow.
What a great life they have there at your pond. Beautiful ducks for sure. The first shot is really sharp!
Whatever they're doing they are pretty as they're doing it! (trying to keep up with the "Ps".
Love these Whistlers!
It was like a spa day.
now that you mention it, we really haven't seen many ponding whistlers!
They are leading a peaceful life in a calm environment!
How many of those ducks do you have? I get such a kick out of weeing them perching like birds on a wire or post. xo Jenny
Run*A*Round Ranch, Club Med for Whistlers!

HI Tex You are so fortunate to have these beautiful ducks on your property.
heerlijk om dit zo te volgen.
Beautiful pictures of the Whistlers.Picture 1 and 7 are my favorite.Greetings Irma
I am amazed that they can stand like that on the rail with their webbed feet! Very cool!
Who would have though a duck preferred land to water?
Hi Theresa! Just came over to say hello and see what has been happening on the Runaround Ranch.The Wednesday Whistlers are always a pleasure to see, and you have some beauiful captures here.Ill health, both mine and my husbands has kept me away from blogging, but I hope to be back some time in June. See you then!:)

They're so much fun.. as are you with your "lather, rinse, repeat!"
Great shots. They are soooo cute! :)
They know where the bread is buttered!!!...:)JP
Two Peas in a POD. Surely, I'm the only one to think of that. :)
I know one thing...the Whistlers thinks life is good at the ranch!
