Dearest Theresa; You said it right, your Whistling Ducks and fences really do go together♡♡♡ For me, their rubbery feet look really lovely and useful (^_^)v
Wishing you’ll have a wonderful coming Thanksgiving Day.

Sending Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my Dear friend in America, xoxo Miyako*

Julia said...

Of course you're right Theresa. They really go together. I wonder what they are looking at.

Happy Thanksgiving tomorrow. I'm thankful having you as a blogger friend.
Hugs,

Gotta love those Whistlers! AnyWHERE!!

Have a happy holiday tomorrow Ms. T. Just hoping the whistlers leaving your area doesn't mean that turkey day is really whistler day?! [kidding]

Sandra said...

Good morning, i love those rubbery feet to.. and the fence looks great.

Mike @ A Bit About Britain said...

I was tempted to say, "Get a grip". But they already have.

Lynne said...

Happy Thanksgiving Theresa and to your silly, happy Whistlers too!

Georgette Sullins said...

Happy Thanksgiving, Theresa. Thank you for sharing these guys on Wednesdays. I'm grateful our paths crossed.

Leo van said...

Beautiful. how can they remain as yet.
Currently come here now hibernate many geese.

Barb Brookbank said...

Yes, they do! and Happy Thanksgiving!

Terri said...

Cute as always..it is an amazing thing to hang on to fencing with no toes but they are certainly pros at it! Happy Thanksgiving!

Jennifer A. Jilks said...

Cool! I saw the post title and Whistlers, and knew I would see photos of your lovely birds!!!

John's Island said...

Wonderful Whistlers watching and waiting!

William Kendall said...

Hail, hail, the gang's all here!

They're such marvelous characters.

DJan said...

My favorite: silly whistlers! Must be Wednesday. :-)

Marit Sønstebø said...

Very nice fence with whistlers on it :)

Sheeps Peeps said...

Oh how we love your Whistlers... then to top it off that fabulous fence... Love!

Felicia said...

whistlers and fences go together like bacon and eggs.

Cattails said...

Those silly, rubbery feet are cute as can be. Look forward to joining your fence meme when I can get out more and take new pics. Happy Thanksgiving.

Debbie said...

they do love those "line ups"!!!! it is amazing they are able to hold their balance with those slippery feet. I guess the width helps them keep their balance!!!

Country Wife said...

Very nice

Knipsa Passtscho said...

Wonderful photos Theresa!
Love the crazy ducks :)
The fence is beautiful too ;)

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and don't eat too much! :))

ツ Knipsa

Whistlers in a row hanging on by their toes. Another awesome capture.

Life's a balancing act. Exhibit A.

Author R. Mac Wheeler said...

You see Muskovies in trees down these parts...always makes me shake my head. They lay their eggs up there too. So a duck on a fence shouldn't surprise me.

:)

nookworm said...

What a balancing act you have access to. They do keep you grabbing your camera, don't they? I do like the fence.

HighPlainsFlyFisher said...

Silly birds!!
Here's hoping you and your family and all of those farm critters have a Happy Thanksgiving!!

Mary Cromer said...

A perfect combo of these beautiful ducks perched upon the fencing~

Primitive Stars said...

Morning, sweet rubber feet ducky's, enjoy the lineup. Blessings Francine.

John @ Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

Those whacky ducks will do anything to amuse you.

S. J. Qualls said...

I'm running out of things to say about these beautiful rubber footed ducks. They are unusual. I know it's Wednesday! Happy Thanksgiving tomorrow - maybe with another bird!

wildlifewatcher said...

Hi Theresa, Have a great Thanksgiving! Nice Whistler pictures today as usual. Have a wonderful day today!

Sylvia K said...

I do love those Whistlers!! Hope your week -- and theirs -- is going well!

Irma said...

Magnificent as the Whistlers balancing on the fence.

don said...

It is amazing how those oversized rubbery feet can stand on a pipe fence. Very interesting series. I think it is convenient to give folks a chance to post their pictures today instead of on Thanksgiving. That is good thinking ahead!!!!

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi TWG .. rubber feet - good name ... and have a very happy Thanksgiving tomorrow .. cheers Hilary

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

Those whistlers always make me smile! Happy Thanksgiving :-)

DeniseinVA said...

As Lisa says, they always make me smile. Happy Thanksgiving Theresa :-)

Happy Thanksgiving to you!

They look so comical!

bailey-road.com said...

They look good lined up on your horse fence. Watch out for those two characters on the right (in the second shot) - they look like trouble.
Happy Thanksgiving to all at Run*A*Round Ranch!

Indrani said...

How they sit in a disciplined manner. Great pics.

♥ Łucja-Maria ♥ said...

HAPPY THANKSGIVING, THERESA.
BEAUTIFUL PHOTOS!

Halcyon said...

Looks like they're using this fence as a launch ramp. ;-)

Laura. M said...

You always have good meetings around you;))

Phil Slade said...

Hey I'm going to get a few of those whistlers for my own fence. Then I can have lots of 'fence' pictures.

Jeanne said...

Sometimes I think He put some creatures on this earth just to amuse us!

Rory Bore said...

That is hilarious!!
reminds me of that Pixar short movie with all the birds on the wire. too funny.

Munir said...

Aren't they neat. They do not complain about dreary skies.
Happy Thanksgiving to you, your family and your birds.

eileeninmd said...

Perfect! The Whistling Duck on the fences, what more could you ask for.. Great shots, you know I love these ducks.. Thanks for hosting..
Happy Thanksgiving, Theresa!

Lynn said...

Our weather today is 'just ducky' too:@) Rain, snow and sleet... Perfect for the busiest travel day of the year!

Bob Bushell said...

They are beautiful, a whistleing I shall go.

Stephanie said...

They are silly ones for sure but are adorable.

Debby Ray said...

Killing two birds with one stone, huh? Sorry...couldn't resist that temptation since your Wednesday Whistlers are perched on your Friday Good Fences :) Happy Thanksgiving, friend!

Ms. A said...

Wondering what they have their sights on in the last shot?

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

I still don;t understand how they can perch on a fence with webbed feet, but they obviously have it figured out, which makes them smarter than me.

Robin Lamb said...

T, not only do they perch, but they look quite comfortable doing it!
Happy Thanksgiving to you!

Karen Schurr said...

oh, what a cute picture. Can't get enough of those orange beaks.

Insane Penguin said...

Those are pretty ducks.

Gosia k said...

they are lazy and slow birds

Chris Rohrer said...

I agree! Birds and fences do go together. Have a happy thanksgiving! All my best. Chris

Joseph Jameson-Gould said...

They must be glad they're so rubbery. I for one would want a sturdy pair of boots!

orvokki said...

How nice birds !!!

RedPat said...

They do love to perch! ;-)

Sally Crowe said...

Beautiful photos. Beautiful you; Happy Thanksgiving, T.

xoxo

Black Jack's Carol said...

That's the perfect combination shot to bring your Wednesday Whistlers and Thursday Fences in sync. A very Happy Thanksgiving to you. Your blog is a perpetually beautiful statement of thanks.

Our photos said...

I agree ! Very nice !

Terry and Linda said...

I think they are one of the few (if only) ducks that can sit on a fence!

sonia a. mascaro said...

A Very Happy Thanksgiving to you Tex and yours!
So lovely these Whistling Ducks!

A Quiet Corner said...

They are so adorable sitting on that fence!...:)JP

Red said...

It's always amazing to see these guys stand on a fence. Also, I have seen mallards nest in a spruce tree.

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Theresa,
Guess their rubbery feet also are kind of slip-resistant!
Wishing you both a Happy Thanksgiving.
Hugs,
Mariette

Hilary said...

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours, Theresa. :)

Bethany Carson said...

I like the photo where a couple of the whistlers have their wings outstretched.

Stephen Hayes said...

It's a shame that these whistlers are all lined up but can't carry a tune. Happy Thanksgiving.

Farm Girl said...

Lovely shots. Have a lovely Thanksgiving! Filled with lots of food. :)

bj said...

Always love seeing your critters.
Enjoy your holiday.
xo

Gillian Olson said...

They are a comical bunch. Happy Thanksgiving.

Randy said...

That last shot is funny.

Pauline Woodcock said...

That's a multi purpose fence! The ducks probably appreciate it more than most animals do.

~Kim at Golden Pines~ said...

I think they enjoy their fences as much as I enjoy seeing their photos, maybe more!! :-)

And I hope you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Tanya Breese said...

a combo today!! i'm sorry i don't have a fence this week...been so hectic with my problems...be back next week though! happy thanksgiving!!

Paul said...

One day some enterprising inventor will invent "duck boots" with "Whistler tread" and make a tidy little fortune!

jeannettestgermain said...

Hi Teresa, this all started with me wanting to with you a happy Thanksgiving (and I hereby do!), but my antivirus protection kept blocking me, so I tried to circumvent that by putting in a link and then leaving you a wish, but it did not work:( I thought that my email subscription would be a way to reach you, but that didn't work either. So, I hope it will work now! (of course you may delete the link -it's your blog:) ) and hope I'll have a fence next week!

Rita said...

Ahh! I have missed the Whistlers!! ;)

Jutta.K said...

That are so great shots succeeded, beautiful natural fence decoration ;-)
Friendly greetings from Germany

Gerald (SK14) said...

Now that's a happy treat to see them all enjoying the fence in an orderly fashion too! Happy Thanksgiving to you and all your loved ones, pups and horses and all!

What beautiful shots of the Whistlers and the fence. I've been off Blogger for an absolute age, but back in Tanzania and on blogger again! Have a great day. Jo

Andrea Priebe said...

I love this ... how do they hold on to the fence with those big flat feet. They have to be one of the many things you are thankful for, Theresa ... they are so much fun.

Andrea @ From The Sol

Ida said...

They sure do. I love these guys, they are so cute and have good balance there on that fence.

Montanagirl said...

They are so darn cute - they don't seem to have any trouble perching on those pipe type fences!

Kerri Farley said...

Happy Thanksgiving!!

I love ducks sitting on the fence. Thank you for your comment No. 1. :)

Black Jack's Carol said...

They do indeed seem to link up rather nicely. I hope you and your Whistlers and all your (other) loved ones
are enjoying a beautiful Thanksgiving Day, Theresa.

Linda said...

Hope you and the ducks had a great day!

Liz Needle said...

Hi Teresa, not been blogging for a while, but decided I was missing 'Fences" too much. Lovely to see you are now "The Boss". Just love your ducks on the fence - and the old fence too of course.
Liz

s.c said...

The fence had its best time in the past but is a perfect support for the ducks. Great photo's here.

barbara l. hale said...

Missed the fences but glad I got to see the whistlers!

edenhills said...

They really do dress up an old gate!

Helma said...

Wonderful that these ducks and other birds have so much space to you:-) Nice to sit on the fence.

Marie said...

Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Nothing like whistlers to bring a little twinge of joy to any day! :-)
