Whistlers on Wednesday 96

Another batch of the marauding mob of juveniles that came to visit in early August.

 


 They definitely like to move en masse.

 And the leaders get tentative when faced with new things.




That's all for now.

Of course, I can't hear all of their noise, but in some of the photos they almost seem thoughtful and placid. Maybe I need more coffee...lol. Love them anyway!

Sandra said...

nookworm said...

First Class Opportunity! How wonderful you can see their behavior and then capture it so successfully with your photography skills.

William Kendall said...

They're forming an army, and planning world domination. Good shots!

They remind me of a group of teen guys with retro Mohawk haircuts!

Stephanie Faris said...

Beautiful! But all I think of when I look at them is, lots of poop!!!

It is very beautiful.

They are GROWING!

don said...

Fine shots that show the large number of whistlers. I'll bet they can eat an enormous amount of grain.

Sylvia K said...

They do stick together, don't they!! We could probably learn something from them!!

Karen S. said...

As cute and incredibly adorable as they are here, I sure wouldn't want to see the other side of them if someone were to provoke them!

Ruth Hiebert said...

They look like they are on a mission.

Gail Dixon said...

I think they feel safer in large numbers. Beautiful close-ups!

Debbie said...

ooohhhhh there are just so many!! Awesome captures!!

Revrunner said...

It can be tough to be a leader. :-)

Nancy J said...

Another super story in photos, from start to "the end", they are fascinating birds, and are they always in such a large group? Cheers,Jean.

Chris Rohrer said...

You have a healthy number of these birds walking around...sweet!

Terry and Linda said...

Have your hords returned for the winter?

Hi Theresa, The juveniles were spunky, huh! So glad you offered hospitality to the mob. Wonderful fun. Nice pictures. Keep the Wed. Whistlers coming. Have a fine day tomorrow.

Oh my, and like most teenagers they arrived extra hungry. Awesome photos, you are still a lucky ducky!

Margaret Adamson said...

I wonder when do they get their pink? These are wonderful shots.

Chandra said...

Younguns....

I am reminded of the 1st Jurassic Park movie. In particular, where a herd of Dinos runs through a meadow (and a T-Rex snatches one or two).

Hope these guys are safe and sound!

Peace :)

Ha.. gotta love that last shot. Perfect ending. ;)

Marit Sønstebø said...

Lovely photos! I like these teenagers :)

Our photos said...

Wow, there are many !

Black Jack's Carol said...

Joseph's comment made me laugh :) They clearly weren't worried about your presence but there's a "what have we here?" look in the leader's face (especially the one on the right in the last shot) that made me curious too :)

Brian King said...

Ha! They just look like they're up to no good! :-)

Lynn said...

Lovin' the back stretched leg action:@)

Stephen Hayes said...

I could stare at these guys for hours, as you obviously do. Take care.

sweetdaysundertheoaks.com said...

They have such sweet faces. I was looking for just the teeniest bit of a pink beak!

Red said...

I wouldn't want to tangle with this group.

Melissa said...

So the juveniles all have the gray beaks. They do move like a pack of teenagers!

Karen @ away for the weekend said...

You got some great shots of those cuties - I really do love their bluish-grey beaks!

Barb said...

I love that last pic - whistlers on the prowl.

Beatrice Euphemie said...

Love the description - marauding juveniles! They must eat you out of house and home....I remember those days! Love their dark eyes.

Paula said...

The Whistlers are so funny the way they stay so close to each other. We just came from the river park to feed the ducks.

~Kim at Golden Pines~ said...

Now this is a marauding mob of juveniles that I don't and wouldn't mind having around! GREAT series of photos!!

McGuffy Ann Morris said...

They truly are lovely. You do them justice.

KB Bear said...

I can see their personalities in your photos!

Randy said...

At least that group of teens won't spray your place with graffiti.

Cassandra Louise said...

They're so beautiful! I should walk to the park and see if my duck friends have a new brood yet. :-)

Stephanie said...

Great shots of the teenagers! All so cute!

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Theresa,
Those juveniles I must say do have cute and friendly faces! One only can embrace and feed them...
Hugs,
Mariette

SweetMarie said...

Love the endings! :)

Tina Fariss Barbour said...

Phil Slade said...

Hey yes, those ducks certainly come mob-handed to dine at your restaurant Theresa.

Jeevan said...

Stewart M said...

I'm surprised you have ant grass left on the ground - or do these ducks eat something else?

Cheers - Stewart M -Melbourne

Indrani said...

Wow! Truly great captures.

Terri said...

I had to back up to this day because I missed it! And you know I love to see the whistlers on Wednesday! Is this where "birds of a feather, stick together" came from?? :) They sure are adorable.
