Oh how sweet, so glad you caught them during their brief stay!
Whoop, I am the early bird this morning in the comment list! Love your whistler shots..and these little guys are too cute! Have a great day Theresa!!
We agree great shots of their brief stay. Have a Wonderful Wednesday.Best wishes Molly
They got really many offsprings! They are so cute!
I like the one in the middle on the upper part of the tree... Seems like the chill one in the group:@)
As unsettled as the youngsters might be, it looks like mom has them firmly in hand!
A gang of Whistlers hanging out. Resting or looking for mischief?
They certainly are active birds!!
Whistlers are at it again...the little tinkers!
My proverbial hat is off to Mama Whistler. Training that many juvies looks like a big job to me, lol. Love the photos!
I love your Whistler pictures...they also remind me to roll out the garbage. Weds. Is garbage pickup day. Plz don't move them to Thursday! janey
They're teenagers! They don't have the balance to stay in line!
Looks like class will start in a few minutes.
Safer on the ground, maybe.
A happy family.
Mama's doing a good job keeping them together.
Wow. Raising that many kids to teenagerhood!Nice jerb, mom.~
Looks like the mom whistler has quite the job cut out for her keeping everyone in line!
some good balancing from those quakers
That's quite a brood to keep an eye on!
They look so happy together.MersadMersad Donko Photography
What a sweet little family portrait!
How fun for you to watch all these little guys grow up. Looks like they are almost ready to strike out on their own.
Well, weekly Wednesday Whistlers! Wonce again!
Ah, my favorites! Whistlers, and it must be Wednesday again already. Mom and Dad have their hands (wings?) full. :-)
These are cute pictures.
lol The parents could have been trying to burn up their energy and were resting for the time being.Beautiful captures especially the flight shot!
Mama whistler looked mad...no wonder the one jumped to the ground.
'If you kids can't settle down, I'm not taking you out in public again.' Lol. Cute cute.
HA HA I can't even imagine having that many children out on a limb at one time..
There are really beautifil.. On a tree???. ha!!!. ;-)
I always enjoy seeing them in their social element! They have the best time together!
Certainly a lot of youngsters
They didn't stop to eat?
Wonderful family portraits!
It is very pretty though. I love them on that log.
Wonderful series on a whistler family! Seems like tough job for the parent birds to control the young ones, who are eager to discover on their own :)
Love the whistlers, they are my favorite!
I'm gonna have to get me some of these!
I love these Whistlers Wednesdays. Such a cute family.Hugs,JB
Beautiful pictures of the Whistlers.They look so happy together.
Yep, I do love your family portraits!!
Yes, just wonderful photos, which pretty fun day in the sun !!
very nice!!! kinda' funny to see them getting hollered at....but that's a big group to "keep in line"!!!
This fine series shows the size difference between mom and the young whistlers. She seems to be doing a fine job of herding them around.
It won't be long now before you have hordes!!Lindahttp://coloradofarmlife.wordpress.com/?s=The+Adventures+of+Fuzzy+and+Boomer&submit=Search http://coloradofarmlife.wordpress.com
I'd go out on a limb and say these are fine pictures, but the limb is already too crowded. Ha!
What a lovely family!!So cute!!Great shots Tex!Love those ducks!!Dimi...
Do they whistle for you to come when they gather? It seems that you are always on the spot to see their antics!
Ducks are such brave parents to have so many kids..er, ducklings!
What a lovely family portrait.
I think you need to write a real good song sheet about these guys and girl Whistlers. Wonderful Pics.
Mom has her hands (wings?) quite full!
Nothing quite like Mom trying to placate a bunch of teenagers, poor woman.
Awwww, I love family gatherings!Had to look for you today, you didn't show up on my dashboard!
It looks like it's a bit high up that branch, maybe the kids are like me: Scared of heights....
Ale miejsce sobie znalazły:) Pozdrawiam i zapraszam do mnie:)
They look very content.
When I know what day it is, I look forward to Wednesday, it is a Whistling we go.
They seem very large to be still with the parents. I guess survival rate is much higher that way.
oh no, looks like one is getting in trouble in that second pic lol
How nice of Mom to bring the kids to visit you! They must be so thankful for all the care you have given them, if only they knew how to behave when visiting, kids!
These amazing photos create a new kind of fairy tale.Because your capabilities in photography are perfect.Yannis Politopoulos
Your place must be on all the whistler maps as a good spot to stop for a bit! ;-)
They find the best spots to pose for you!
what a funny gathering
So sweet!! It cant be so easy to balance on the three like that, with their feets :))Thanks for telling me about the video, I hope its working now :D
T, nice ones! It still amazes me to see ducks sitting in trees!
Pretty neat that the Whistlers remind one commenter to put out the garbage can. Your commenters are as delightful as your pictures.
Very nice! Love these.:)
Very nice !
Kinda like the old woman in the shoe, has too many babies to know what to do. Very cute tho.
fun to see them thus!ALOHA from HonoluluComfortSpiral =^..^= . <3 . >< } } (°>
that was one busy mama :)
The Pres s one of eight...no wonder his Mom was tired!!!...:)JP
I'm betting those troops aren't easy to settle! :-)
i am whistling while i read this ... whistle, whistle. ( :
The gang is all here.
Every summer, I am struck by the fact that fathers and mothers raise their bird babies. That's pretty rare in the world of mammals (except among primates). It's amazing to see that whole family on your old log.
I've missed your whistler posts. Happy to bounce in and see this one and happy they stuck around long enough for you to grab these pics.
Lucky you! able to snap the photo just in time when they are all together
If a group of ducks in the water is called a "raft" or "bunch" and if they are swimming they are called a "paddling" or "team" and if they are on land they are called a "safe" or "brace" and in flight they are called a "flock". Just what do you call a group of Whistlers in a tree?
This is great! I only had five kids to ride herd on and that was exhausting enough.....
Beautiful photos of a beautiful site! That's real neat!
So cute to see the mom Whistler being a mom! :-)
They are cute as a button.
Oh gosh, more delightful pics! I am so pleased I discovered your blog!
Looks like Mom's got her wings full! Cute bunch! :) Karen
that is quite a family to watch over..you might need to change your ranches name to The Whistler B&B..:-)
Oh these are such great shots. I love the mom keeping the youngsters in line!!
Oh. those Whistlers! It's so cute to see them all lined up (sorta) like that.
They certainly are prolific! Taking over the world, I think.
They love to hang out, don't they!
Love your photos. Wonderful how you got them all lined up on that tree. And especially the one in mid air (took me a moment to see it ;))
these are so much fun!
Dear Theresa, I love looking at these photos. It is such a pretty party of the country and I am simply so happy to get to see it through these photos. Catherine
These guys are such characters and so much fun to see.
Love those family together group photos. You did a fine job, and much better cooperation then I sometimes get when the family gathers ;) Happy Weekend my friend~
I wish I could HUG them!
Have a good meeting;))
Never a dull moment with that cute group! :DLindy
Mary Cromer's comment made me smile :) It did look like a family meeting. I wonder if they were being told to practice landings and take-off's the way the cormorants do here. The branch would be perfect.. not too far to fall :)
They have a better standing roost as compared to the wire fence they sometimes perch on!! Aren't ALL Momma's the same!!!
Lol ...... my favorite ducks. Question: Do you know where Eileen is whether she has stopped ???
