Whistlers on Wednesday 114

Goofy duck trying to get to the bird feeder from up above...

(Male Cardinal at the feeder in the foreground)


 Showing his frustration.
 But he's not giving up.
Yes, they're successful in getting into this feeder, too.

 More waiting above...
 While others dine below.
 
Goofy ducks...

They are goofy but still so darn cute! I always enjoy Whistling duck Wednesday...Great shots, enjoy your day!

Knipsa Passtscho said...

They must be starving if they keep trying to get to food that's not for them :)
Theresa, you must feed them better! Go back to that cute store and buy some more! ;)
These ducks will get into my dreams one day, and I hope it won't be a nightmare :D

Have a real fun day

How unusual to see ducks try to reach a bird feeder! FUN!

Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

It sure looks like it would be VERY hard for them to get IN the feeder! But, obviously, they can! Cute!! The guys on the ground are the smart ones. hee hee. blessings ~ tanna

eViL pOp TaRt said...

They are so comical! I wonder if he had a hard time getting out of the feeder also?

Gosia k said...

Your birds are so greedy... eaters

magnoliasntea said...

Those ducks are just like people - goofy-wise and how they eat their grub, too.

Dicky Bird said...

Oh my goodness

messymimi said...

As if you don't give them enough, they have to go after the bird feeders! Reminds me of my cats, always going from one bowl to the next, to see if the other cat has something better when it's all the same. Such silly critters, yet we love them dearly.

John's Island said...

Hi Tex, Always enjoy the whistler series. Nice work. John

carolann said...

Oh those whistlers. Greedy guys.

Yet so prrrrrrrrrrrrty.

Linda Kay said...

They look a bit precarious on the limbs of the tree, don't they? It must be the challenge.

Cheri Savory Spoon said...

Looks like a balancing act to me, how adorable!

Brk Trt said...

"Daffy"

Tanya Breese said...

they are so silly! love the second to the last shot especially!

HighPlainsFlyFisher said...

No feeder seems to be safe from the wrath of the whistlers! I can only imagine what the other "normal" birds at the feeder have to say after an encounter with a voracious flock of whistlers...

joeh said...

But the squirrels make it look so easy.

Karen Schurr said...

Ah, the dreaded orange-beaked squirrel :)

They're the squirrels of the bird world.

They must have learned this trick from the squirrels. They look silly perching in the feeder.
Hugs,

ellen abbott said...

And I just have to contend with one pesky squirrel.

I thought she did not succeed, but it worked. Regards.

Ah, love those goofy, neck-stretching Whistlers!! Always a great start for the day!!!

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

They certainly are resourceful!

don said...

That whistler trying to get into the feeder from the top is quite a few IQ points lower than the other ducks! :-)

nookworm said...

How funny and wonderfully determined are these greedy gluttonous gulpers. Can you get photos of them exiting the feeder?

DJan said...

They are such favorites that I forgive them for being such goofy ducks. :-)

Talk about sticking out your neck!

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

The other two are thinking "How'd he do'd that?"

Pom Pom said...

The cardinal looks so pretty and matches the silly (and gorgeous) Whistlers!

Hilary said...

Oh geesh.. they leaned from the squirrels. This quacked me up!

Author R. Mac Wheeler said...

bwa ha ha. I can't believe that. They're as bad as the squirrels. (What am I saying...nothing is that bad)

Nancy Chan said...

Interesting to see the ducks squeezing into the feeder. Am curious to see how they are going to take off from the feeder.

Terry and Linda said...

I think those ducks range right up there with the Squirrels!

Well, it looks like a good challenge with a nice reward at the end! Those Whistlers are smart!

Nancy J said...

The message spreads even wider " Call in here, food on platters for everyone, " this is so funny.

Leovi Leovi said...

Yes, Pretty sequence, fun!

Karen S. said...

These guys just always make me smile. They actually deserve their own reality show, and all though I'm not a fan of reality TV I would watch their show!

RedPat said...

These guys are such characters, Tex! Always fun to see. ;-))

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Atlas said...

Those Whistlers seem a mischievous group of birds don't they. Makes me smile.

Robin Lamb said...

T, silly ducks!

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

I do not recall seeing the little claws on their feet before. They look especially goofy in the feeder.

William Kendall said...

Goofy or not, they are utterly adorable ducks!

Brian King said...

LOL! I'm not sure if that's stupidity or just sheer will!

Lynn said...

Looking at him packed into the feeder in that second to last pic kinda reminds me of, well... me trying to get my work pants on this morning:@)

bailey-road.com said...

Goobers!

Joseph Jameson-Gould said...

Haha! Nice try!

Fjällripan said...

It looks so funny when they are up in the three! :)) With those feets!

Looks like they have been taking lessons from some squirrels on how to get into a feeder!

Rose said...

I bet they have you laughing every day...I know i never see a post about them without I am smiling when I get done!

Paul said...

Really funny series of whistler antics!

I wonder how many whistlers fell from the branch before they figured out how to get inside the feeder?

Fly Girl said...

How hilarious! And I love their pretty pink bills.

Halcyon said...

Love the big, fat whistler perched right in the feeder. They'll do anything for a free lunch! ;-)

Denise at Autumn Sky said...

Their big feet look so funny on those branches. Clown feet!

Midmarsh John said...

Webbed feet on small branches look so ungainly.

Pantherka said...

It's very beautiful.

bon bon said...

Goofball. He needs to breed with a swan (or giraffe) so his offspring have better chances.

Hope all is super with you, twg, and that you're seeing signs of spring! Hugs!

Helma said...

Betty Manousos said...
